Beautiful architecture, with an outstanding cultural function
Dec 2017
In a city whose history is unusually short by Italian standards, as is Pescara, this building is certainly one of the main attractions. One reason for its interest is, that it's the work of two well-known architects. The first one is Antonio Liberi, brother-in-law of the Pescara-born poet Gabriele D'Annunzio; by his achievements in Art Nouveau style (including the facade of this building) he has strongly contributed to create - between the between the eighties of the XIXth century and the twenties of the XXth century - the architectural face of the city. The second one, the author of the horseshoe-shaped expansion project (1938), is an architect of European fame (among other things, the project for "Santa Maria Novella" railway station in Florence is due to him): Giovanni Michelucci. Another reason for interest is the "thick" history of the building: from meeting builiding for the high Pescara society (when it took the evocative name "Kursaal"), to factory for production of a famous local liqueur (indeed called "Aurum"), up to its present function, of cultural center: venue for exhibitions, for performing arts, congress center, etc. (what could happen after the acquisition by the Pescara Municipality and a careful restoration). A visit to the many halls will take you little time and will result in a pleasant experience. It's also possible that you can visit one of the exhibitions that take place frequently here. "Aurum" can be easily reached from the center of Pescara and from the railway station by the #21 bus.

This museum is absolutely beautiful. My fiance and I were lucky enough to be able to get a few of our engagement photos done inside!

Lovely Place.

A nice simple but attractive building in a usually quiet setting. The subtle pastel exterior is typical of so many other buildings from a similar era. Do visit if in Pescara.

Worth it ONLY if there is a good show on

It is a very good exhibition place where there are constant modern art shows. The building was recently restored and it was very well carried out. Pity though that exhibitions are not always well curated.
