The visit begins in the Attic Spaces and the Tower, where you will be immersed in a screening of the film entitled A Thousand Years in San Gimignano, which brings the walls of the house to life. The film enters into a dialogue with a dazzling alabaster model of the town, in a captivating combination of audio-visual evocations that signals the start of your journey in search of the jewel that is San Gimignano.
On the same floor, you will come across a space where you can browse through books on the town and the surrounding area, and discover – in a small, temporary exhibition – a number of compelling items from the archive of the family who lived in Casa Campatelli.
The visit continues on the piano nobile, which has been remodelled to resemble the way it would have looked at the end of the 19th century, thanks to the inclusion of original furnishings and objets d’art from the house – complemented by other, painstakingly selected pieces – in order to give you the chance to savour the atmosphere of an earlier age, as you make your way between public rooms and bedrooms, where you will find paintings, documents, decorative pieces and photographs collected by the donor, which illustrate the specific characters who lived here and their experiences, as well as the more general lifestyle of a typical upper-middle-class Tuscan family of the time.
