ROOM LEON PERRET
this room time has really stopped.
There is a
wonderful collection of suggestive pictures of the sailing
period from the XV to the XVII century as well as a series
of models of ancient vessels with Dutch, French, Spanish
and English flags that represent the contribute in marine
creativity of this famous artist and modeller (among the
firsts of the nation) during the period from the last and
the present century.
Unfortunately this collection
is not complete: many models are now exhibited in other European
museums, in particular French and Swiss.
Also of great
interest is the Columbian triptych with the famous caravels
which possesses one of the most accurate and valuable historical
and technical recontruction and that is, together with the
Colombian Biography also present in the Museum, a real centre
Between the most accurate models
in the room there are those relative to the two-masted sailing-boat,
the schooner brigantine, the french chalutier, the
adriatic trabaccolo and the modelist's diorama of
laboratory, this one presented at the Genoa Expo.
this room is also showed th first pattern, present in the
Museum, of figure-head of english brigantine of 1840, restored
