The Bigazzi Collection
The first section of the museum is devoted to the earliest icons which represent the numerous and various schools of Russian iconography, from the schools of Moscow to those of Kiev or Kazan. It then passes to the more recent icons, such as those of the Bigazzi Collection, merging ancient spirituality with modern mentality.
In 2003 the Bigazzi Collection was joined by the Maria Clelia Loppi collection: icons from the 1700s and 1800s depicting the Madonna, the Feste and the Saints, in addition to the “rize”, which are the covers of the icons that were usually made of silver, brass and beads.
