The Diotti Museum is a 800 and 900 art museum, located in Casalmaggiore. Open to the public since 2007, the museum is housed in an ancient palace which was owned by the painter. Giuseppe Diotti. Respecting the will of its illustrious inhabitant and restoring the appearance of a private home, the museum is not only intended as a picture gallery of the 19th century, but also as a home-museum designed to reconstruct the image of the artist and to give a didactic return to the method of work of the artist. Giuseppe Diotti's house-atelier occupies the eight rooms of the noble floor that deal with every aspect of the painter's work from the years of study in Rome, through the preparatory drawings of various frescoes that show the painter's attention to the figure human and its representation, to the studies for the painting depicting the Pontida oath. In addition to works by Diotti, artists such as Marcantonio Ghislina, Francesco Antonio Chiozzi, Paolo Araldi, Paolo Troubetzkoy, Tommaso Aroldi, Amedeo Bocchi are represented. The route continues with the Gallery of Modern Art that, in the two levels of the northern wing of the building, collects the most significant works of the 900's of mostly local artists, such as Mario Beltrami, Gianfranco Manara, Tino Aroldi, Goliardo Padova; particularly in the countryside surrounding the Casalmaggiore and the Po River. Peculiar is also the path of the ateliers: the ateliers of the painters Goliardo Padova and Palmiro Vezzoni and the sculptor Ercole Priori have been rebuilt to allow visitors to observe closely the working environments of the artists and the tools they use in the creation of their works. The museum has a rich educational program for schools and regularly arranges various temporary exhibitions. In addition, during the summer months, there is a cinematic exhibition in the palace garden.
