This is a gallery of special art and artefacts collected by the Magnani Rocca family. The foundation was born in 1977.Here there are works by Filippo Lippi, Durer, Titian, Rubens, Van Dyck, Monet, Renoir, Cezanne and others. As a person who has not appreciated art until late in life, this was a gallery in which to see some beautiful art... More

We visited at lunchtime in early June and, suspect, we were the only folks there. The permanent exhibition is quite splendid but the temporary is a lot more hit and miss – there was more quality ‘modern art’ in the permanent exhibition than the temporary one from the Museum of Modern Art in Rome. The downsides include the fact if... More

We wanted very much to see this collection but didn't want to drive from Parma. We learned from the tourist office there is a bus. It was very simple, just buy your ticket at the TEP office next to the station. Walk 1 block, get the bus and 30 min later you are at the villa. The collection is astounding--not... More

It's located in a village 17km south of Parma & is worth a special detour even without visiting the Torrechiara castle. A beautiful villa standing in a big park. Inside there are temporary exhibitions, but for me the highlight was the permanent one displaying works of Goya, Cezanne, Monet, Mattisse, Renoir, Titian, Durer etc. While admiring the art it's worthwhile...

A great collection, in a very pleasant (if anachronistically English parkland) setting. The Durers are a rare treat especially, but interesting mix of Impressionist and 20th century Italian art too. Worth tying in with a trip to the local castle at Torrechiara on a cycle ride (plenty of cycle hire places in Parma), as the surrounding farming countryside is worth... More

This is a hidden gem in the middle of the beautiful countryside. This is a spectacular villa with a beautiful collection including Albrect Durer and Monet. It is a small collection but there were not many people there the afternoon we went so I could just gaze-away... A completely peaceful way to spend an afternoon. The grounds are gorgeous and...

A magnificent collection tucked away in the countryside outside Parma is not to be missed by art lovers. It can be easily linked to a visit to the stunning castle of Torrechiara in an excursion from Parma. The villa is set in beautiful formal English-style parklands which are visited by local people as an outing in its own right but... More

Made a stop at magnani Rocca on our way back to Parma from visiting the castle of torrechiara, perfect combination, the sights are really close to esch other. Liked the peaceful surroundings and the small but tasteful collection. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed when we were there.

The park is beatiful, the interior of the Foundation is well organized. However people at the reception and also those serving at the inside bar-restaurant seems to be there to serve for a sentence: it is very hard to succeed to obtain an information or a glass of drink either...

A fantastic location in the middle of the countryside, but excellent links to Parma (incl. the train station). English-style park and a first-class collection. Temporary exhibitions are planned each year. Masterpieces include Goya, Morandi, Cezanne, Canova, Titian, Durer, etc. Very good restaurant in the ex-stables. Concerts in the summer and children activities (booking only)

Thank Catero
