From Myth to Toys


A selection of model horses, art and artisanship of horses from the private collection of Claudia Bettiol is on show at the Museum of Toys in Palazzo Rospiglioso in Zagarolo, Province of Rome. The exhibition ranges from classical art to mirth, tracing thelove of Claudia both for her daughter Maria and for horses over a fifteen year period of collecting with the aim to bring joy to her family. Whether it be Baby to Barbie, ranch, equestrian, the horse in China or Asia, art and sculpture, there is a smile and a reminiscence for everyone in this charming exhibition.

The exhibition officially opens at 1700 on Saturday, 1st October and will be on show for 2 months until 4th December. For further information read more on Energitismo Journal and contact the Museum on 


Very close to Rome, Zagarolo has a shape rather "one-dimensional" along a ridge of tuff 2 km long lined valleys. Therefore it is impossible to photograph the imposing Rospigliosi Palace which occupies the entire width of the town. The Palace began as a military fortification, then prestigious residence, then factory of parachutes and military hospital. From private residence at a palace to serve the city, today Rospigliosi Palace hosts the Toy Museum and the numerous initiatives of local farmers and artisans. It is a living experience that combines art of the past and events of the present, a place where beauty is at the service of the community and helps to build a better future.
