The Civic collection was founded in 1854 when a local solicitor, Antonio Maria Viecha, donated his collection of paintings, sketches and drawings by the painter Giovanni Migliara to the people of Alessandria. In the Palazzo Cuttica, an 18th century building, visitors can enjoy an Museum Trail whith a selection of works of art from the civic collection. Of special importance is the archaeological collection of Cesar Di Negro Carpani, a collector and scholar from the 1800s. With more than 1,000 exhibits, where finds from an early Christian burial site are on display side-by-side with funereal items from Ligurian tombs together with various domestic items; this collection is also as an excellent example of a private collection from the 1800s. One room is dedicated to paintings from the 1500s and 1600s with many important examples of sacred art from northern Italy; the Tapestry Room has two precious Flemish tapestries from the end of the 17th century; the Napoleonic Room is devoted to the French general who won the Battle of Marengo on the outskirts of Alessandria in 1800. The Choral Manuscript and Vestment Room is dedicated to the only Pope to come from Piedmont, Pio V. The Ancient and Modern Print Room is home to a range of historic and Napoleonic prints as well as a selection of more contemporary works which have been donated by artists who have had here temporary exhibitions.
