The eighteenth-century Villa Sartorio, a refined and charming middle-class residence, renovated in neo-classical style by Nicolò Pertsch in the mid-nineteenth century, was occupied until 1946 by the Sartorio family, who then bequeathed it to the City of Trieste. To date, its furnishings remain almost completely intact: the ballroom, parlours, library, dining room, and the large kitchen give us a glimpse of the lifestyle of the nineteenth-century upper middle class in Trieste. The Museum also boasts important collections such as the 254 drawings by Giambattista Tiepolo, one of the world's five most important such collections, acquired by Giuseppe Sartorio in 1893, and Histria, a collection of masterpieces produced from ‘300 to ‘700 (by Paolo Veneziano, Alvise Vivarini, Vittore Carpaccio, Giambattista Tiepolo, etc.), of Istrian provenance, which were stored in Friuli for safekeeping during World War II.
