museo de arte italiano cercado de lima



LIMA | Museo de Arte Italiano is a museum that houses over 200 works from over 120 Italian artists from the early 20th century. The neo-Renaissance building which houses the museum was donated to Lima by the local Italian community in 1921, and designed by Milanese architect Gaetano Moretti.

The six interior rooms are inspired by Donatello, Ghiberti, Michelangelo and Botticelli, and the museum features two large mosaics which celebrate important Italian figures like Christopher Columbus, Dante Alighieri, Saint Francis of Assisi, Leonardo Da Vinci and Marco Polo.

The types of art on display at Museo de Arte Italiano  include sculptures, paintings, drawings, engravings and ceramics, and the collection continues to be expanded to this day. In fact, the museum is the only museum in the world outside of Italy dedicated entirely to Italian artists.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
