No, it doesn't look very good, VP, but that is in large part due to the graffiti that people have scribbled on the walls.

I wonder if the art is patiently waiting inside.

The signs explained a lot about the place. The texture within revealed the era where things were sitting at.

Hopefully one day it will be restored to it's former glory, or at least made a bit more presentable!!

Hopefully it will open soon. I like Italy's tradition of public commentary via graffiti... since the days of the talking statues in Rome :^)

Oh gosh, it's a pity it has been closed for years, people would like to visit the museum.
I hope they can reopen there soon.But first I imagine the place needs some restoration.

It seems that the new 'exhibition routes' are now at the “Teatro Goldoni”, but you can see them only after prior reservation.
