Palazzo dei Giganti (Davia-Bargellini)

And its Two Museums

Palazzo dei Giganti

The Palazzo dei Giganti, properly the Palazzo Davia-Bargellini, is better known by its nickname, for the two Baroque telamones carved by Gabriele Brunelli around the main entrance.

The palace, begun in 1638, contains two museums administered together, the Museo Civico d’Arte Industriale and the Galleria Davia-Bargellini.
