Carriage Collection

 

Comprising a collection of carriages from the 19th and 20th centuries the Carriage Collection of Villa di Maser offers an insight into transport from a bygone age.

 

NOTICE

The carriage collection is momentarily closed

The use of animals for transportation was the norm up until quite recently, and numerous vehicles were used at Villa di Maser for daily life.

With the arrival of the car, such modes of transport quickly fell into disuse, and were preserved and collected by Conte Enrico Luling Buschetti, who, through his great passion for horses, restored them and collected others, to the point where he was able to put together an actual collection of Italian carriages of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Most notable elements in the collection are the postal carriages we have all seen used in westerns, and the Brougham, nicknamed the brùm, which was a common mode of transport used in Milan in the 1900’s.

 

The Carriage Collection is open March to October.
In case of bad weather or on particular days, the Carriage Collection may be closed
