About
The Museum is housed in a late nineteenth century villa located in the center of Pescara. Inside, it houses the precious and ancient ceramic collection of Castelli, the result of 40 years of research and study by Raffaele Paparella Treccia, who donated his collection and his house to a Foundation named after him and his wife Margaret Devlet. Castelli, a small village in the province of Teramo, has been, over the centuries, one of the largest centers for the production of ceramics. The collection exhibited consists of 151 selected masterpieces of the great Castelli masters active between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, including Francesco Grue, his son Carlo Antonio Grue, his grandson Francesco Antonio Saverio and others, such as Gentili, Cappelletti and Fuina, ordered chronologically, and displayed in the main rooms of the house. The Foundation is committed to spreading the knowledge of the majolica of Castelli and educational activities, to promote love and interest for Art.

A must visit while in Pescara .
the Villa that hosts the museum is centrally located and is a beautiful example of early 20 century architecture , unique in its style . The private Castelli collection is unique , beautiful and highly "talks" about the history of Abruzzo . a visit not to be missed when in Pescara

Little gem
May 2015 • Couples
This small museum has a marvellous collection of ceramics from Castelli. Majority of the ceramics come from the 16 to 19th century and are lovely.
The villa is worth a look at, small rooms that give you a sense of how wealthy people lived.
