The Balzan Collection
Balzan Collection in Badia Polesine
A leading figure in business and the cultural milieu in Milan at the beginning of the twentieth century, Eugenio Balzan was also a collector. His taste in art and intuition for investment led him to acquire Italian paintings, mainly from the end of the nineteenth century, in a collection of nearly fifty works by masters like Filippo Palizzi, Domenico Morelli, Mosè Bianchi and Giacomo Favretto.

The collection is part of the assets of the Balzan Foundation, which are administered by the Balzan “Fund” in Zurich. It is currently in the custody of the City of Badia Polesine, where Eugenio Balzan was born, and is open to the public in the foyer of the municipal theatre, which is named after Eugenio Balzan.
