Description

Shortly after the intersection of the old and new Cassia roads, in a place where one can breathe in a quiet and harmonious atmosphere, is the house-museum of the Abruzzese sculptor Venanzo Crocetti (Giulianova 1913 - Rome 2003).


Commissioned by the master after winning the 1951 competition for the St. Peter's Gate in Rome, the building was created to house a large studio to enable him to create the Door of the Sacraments, a work he worked on for fourteen years. The workshop was soon joined by other premises: the house where the master lived until his death and the museum complex, inaugurated in 2002, where his works are exhibited. The house, still furnished as it was then, bears witness to the artist's meditative character and the simplicity that always characterised him. The permanent exhibition, arranged in five rooms on two floors, houses the works created by the sculptor in over seventy years of creative activity; bronze and marble sculptures dating from 1931 to 1998 are on display.
