Museo Il Torrione
The Torrione stands in the homonym street, was built at the expense of the university at the beginning of the XVI century, has served as a watch and defense tower. It was equipped with several guns, one of which remained there until 1787 used to shoot blanks in the days of major religious holidays.
At the end of the last century, the city donated it to the sculptor Giovanni Maltese (1852-1913) who adapted it as his home and studio. Today is home to the Museum dedicated to the sculptor.
There are works that the sculptor had with him at the time of death. The British painter's wife Fayrer Fanny Jane (1851 Cumberwell Forio 1926), gave the tower, the town of Forio before he died.
