Map of Boortmeerbeek for Museo Civico, incorporating Museo Stradivariano Via Ugolani Dati 4 Tues Sat 9am 6pm, Sun 10am 6pm 7 The pilastered Palazzo Affaitati a pleasant ten-minute stroll north of Piazza del Comune holds the Museo Civico Ala Ponzone. The museum is strikingly designed, and forms an excellent setting; it’s just a pity that much of the art is so uninspired. The star painting is St Francis Meditating by Caravaggio, showing the artist’s typically deft handling of light. To find it, head into the cinquecento gallery; it’s hanging in an alcove in the far left-hand corner. Beyond here, hunt out rooms 18 and 19, holding Chinese porcelain, Japanese ivories, Meissen ware and two little examples of eighteenth-century Wedgwood. From room 15, head upstairs for three rooms of nineteenth- and twentieth-century art, including Le Nereidi, a languid, mysterious work painted in 1906 by Cremona-born Emilio Rizzi (1869 1940). From the ticket desk, separate stairs head up to the Sezione Archeologica, displaying Egyptian amulets, rather beautiful Greek vases and delicate Roman glassware. Museo Stradivariano Return to the stairs and head up again into a long hall, where, at the far end, a suite of eighteenth-century rooms filled with the sound of recorded violin music holds the Museo Stradivariano, displaying models, paper patterns, tools and acoustic diagrams from Stradivari’s workshop, a letter to his patron dated August12, 1708, and more violins, violas, viols and cellos, hanging impotently in glass cases. An informative video helps to unravel the mysteries of the violin-maker’s art. Map of Boortmeerbeek 2016.
