There is an amazing bas relief showing the creation of Eve from Adam's body on the exterior stairs leading to the first floor. I had never seen one as detailed and striking. We also saw the splendid exhibit on Visconti's Il Gattopardo.

Interesting little local museum, 4 or 5 rooms of the first floor of the Palazzo Corvaja. An eclectic mix of local crafts and exhibits dating from XVI to XX century. Small but well worth a visit.
