Starting from 1919, the painter Giorgio Kienerk (1869–1948) would spend his summers at Fauglia, drawing inspiration for his works from the surrounding countryside.
The exhibition centring on the artist takes this routine of his as a starting point. Located in the old prison of the Palazzo Comunale, the museum was set up thanks to his daughter Vittoria’s donation, already partially present in the museum on temporary loan (and a possible future bequest). Up to now, the collection has consisted of 130 items that bear witness to Kienerk’s multitude of interests — painting, sculpture, graphic art, illustrations and applied art — as well as to the various stages of his career, veering between Intimist and Symbolist themes, the post-Macchiaioli style and a pronounced pointillism.
