The castle is both headquarters of the foundation founded in 1998 and the home and studio of Sergio Vacchi (1925).
A permanent exhibition of Vacchi’s work was recently set up in the former stables, documenting his career from the youthful neo-Cubist work after Second World War to the later, more visionary figurative paintings with their expressionist sensibility and dramatic colours. The collection includes several important cycles of this singular pictorial language from the 1960s through to contemporary work, including Galileo, Planet, Shining Pools, Initiation Gates and a series of portraits Vacchi painted in the 1980s of friends, intellectuals and artists he particularly esteemed, including Franz Kafka, Francesco Arcangeli, Greta Garbo, and Francis Bacon.
