Situated at the very heart of the historic centre of Savona, alongside the Cattedrale dell’Assunta and the Cappella Sistina, Palazzo Gavotti hosts the collections of the Pinacoteca Civica (the City Art Gallery) and the contemporary artworks belonging to the Fondazione Milena Milani. The visit then proceeds through the halls of Palazzo del Monte di Pietà, where the collections of Museo della Ceramica are on display.
