The Carlo Levi Gallery

Palazzo Morteo holds a permanent displays of 22 works by the writer-painter from Turin (1902-1975) who chose the town of Alassio as his summer residence.
Fitted with the most sophisticated air-conditioning systems to conserve his work, the Gallery offers its visitors a series of landscape paintings which the artist painted while he was in Liguria. All the paintings on display were painted in Alassio, except for his self-portrait.
There’s one on the Méditerranée seafront, others of the hillside, as well as a famous painting of Italo Calvino, a writer from San Remo who would come to visit his friend every year at his Villa Levi in the hills.
Part of the Carlo Levi Historic Fund as letters, notes, drafts and the famous manuscript “Quaderno a cancelli”, donated by Antonio and Silvia Ricci, will showed in special showcases.
