Richard West Memorial Gallery

The Richard Whateley West Gallery is worth a visit, with 76 paintings by the Irish artist who moved to Alassio in 1890 and dedicated his art to capturing poetic glimpses of Alassio and the surrounding areas.
When he died in 1905, his close friends decided to create a venue to display his work; initiated by W.D. Caroe, in 1907 the Gallery was opened to the public, set up in the Memorial Gallery, leaving an extraordinary documentation of the pristine landscapes which Alassio was famous for at the end of the 19th century.
With an almost 15.000 volumes collection, the Gallery is also the English Library for the anglo-Saxon Books Fund seat.
