On the second floor of a majestic building that was constructed in 1875 following the designs of Giovanni Berlam and commissioned by the brothers Carlo Marco and Giacomo Morpurgo, there is a flat of approximately 600 m2 that Mario Morpurgo de Nilma donated to the City of Trieste so that it could be converted into a museum.
The demanding pace of society life is evinced by the large number of drawing rooms. Although each has a different style and colour, there is coherence in the inlaid wood floors, the ceilings, the stucco mouldings, the French lace curtains and the lines of the furniture.
A unique, intact example of the lifestyle of Trieste's new entrepreneurial class.
On the floor below it is possible to visit the Civic Museum of National History
