  • The courtyard of Palazzo Pfanner seems to be tailor-made for hosting events, with its grand scenic flight of steps and entrance hall with arched ceilings,
    embellished with a beautiful view of a luxuriously verdant garden

    André Suarès (1868-1948)

With its grassy lawns, ornamental blossoms, tall shrubs and lemon-trees in large earthenware pots interspersed among the monumental rows of eighteenth-century statues depicting the Olympian gods and the Four Seasons, the garden of Palazzo Pfanner, attributed to the genius of Filippo Juvarra, represents a valuable example of a baroque garden set in the heart of the mediaeval town of Lucca.
The part of Palazzo Pfanner that is currently open to the public includes the large central hall where there is a permanent exhibition of surgical instruments and antique medical texts belonging to Pietro Pfanner (1864-1935), and numerous other rooms containing antique furniture and furnishings as well as sacred objects.
