The last descendent of the Tozzoni family, Sofia Serristori Tozzoni, donated the building to the town in 1981. This noble home, which has been perfectly conserved, not just architecturally but also in the furnishings, offers the visitors a clear view of the life of a 18th century noble family in a provincial town.
The palace was renovated between 1726 and 1738 and probably the project was designed by the architect Alfonso Torreggiani from Bologna under the supervision of Domenico Trifogli, a Ticinese architect.
On exhibition is a rich and important collection of paintings, art objects, furnishings, family souvenirs and a collection of ethnic items which permit the visitors to entirely appreciate the refined atmosphere, such as that of the baroque style of the upper floors. On the lower floors visitors will find a juxtaposition of styles due to the various modifications throughout the centuries.
