Museum of St. Augustine

The Museum of St. Augustine in Genoa,  has been housed since 1984 in the ancient Augustinian convent complex in Piazza Sarzano in the old town (go to route 3).

Inside the evocative rooms that develop over two floors around the cloisters, there are sculptures, detached frescoes and stone artefacts dating from the 10th to the 18th century, largely coming from city buildings and monuments destroyed during the 19th century.

Alongside works by Francesco Maria Schiaffino, Valerio Castello, Domenico Piola, Luca Cambiaso and Filippo Parodi, the Funeral monument to Margaret of Brabant by Giovanni Pisano and the Madonna and Child with the Abduction of Helen by Pierre Puget from Marseille stand out.
