Calderara House, situated in the centre of Vacciago, is a fine example of bourgeois Renaissance architecture. The painter Antonio Calderara (1903 – 1978) transformed the house into a home-studio to house a collection of modern paintings and sculptures, some of which he created and others by numerous international artists with whom he was friends with or whose work he held in high esteem.
The exhibition includes works by artists of the calibre of Jesus Raphael Soto, Josef Albers, Vasarely, Yves Klein, Lucio Fontana, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Osvaldo Licini, Piero Manzoni and many others.
