Curiosities about the Fuseum
Who made the Fuseum?
The original nucleus of the Fuseum was built by Brajo Fuso between 1960 and 1980. The two indoor spaces (Sala degli Elleni and Sala Bettina) are roos that are born after a recent renovation by Fondazione Sodalizio di San Martino and Fondazione Onlus Ecomuseo Colli del Tezio, financed by the Umbria Region and the Ministry of Economic Development.
Who is in charge of maintaining the Fuseum?
Fondazione Onlus Ecomuseo Colli del Tezio is in charge of practical aspects, in collaboration with Fondazione Sodalizio di San Martino that finances ordinary activites.
May I encounter animals in the forest?
The foliage of trees and bushes hide many animal species (mainly birds, lizards, and insects) absolutely harmless. The entire forest is enclosed, so the risk of encountering wild animals inside the park is extremely low.
Which is the nearest city to the Fuseum? How far it is located?
The nearest city is Perugia, whose historical city centre is about 5 km far from the museum park.
Are there other art places where I can see the artworks of Brajo Fuso?
There are three sculptures of Brajo Fuso in the courtyard of Palazzo della Penna, in Perugia.
Accessibility and services
By what means of transport is advisable to reach the Fuseum?
The Fuseum can be reached by car. Due to the small number of car spaces available, we recommend groups to arrange for buses and shuttle services.
Is it possible to park on the street?
No, the small size of verges does not allow that. There is parking inside the park with around ten places available, to which it is possible to enter through the black gate. We are working to build a larger parking lot near the museum park to accommodate more vehicles and visitors.
Fuseum is an accessible place for people with disabilities?
Unfortunately, the Fuseum is a difficult accessibility place for those who have a condition of mobility disability. It was built in the 1960s to collect the artworks of Brajo Fuso in one place only, partly used as a private residence. Only later did it become a museum open to the public. Architectural constraints and the conformation of the park do not allow necessary modification to improve accessibility.
We regret that we cannot do more. In any case, the Fuseum has free admission for people with all types of disability and their assistants.
Is Fuseum a suitable place for children?
In the park, there are sculptures made of metal pieces with possible traces of rust due to exposure to atmospheric agents and sharpened objects. Supervision of adults (parents and/or teachers) during the visit is essential.
Is the Fuseum a place equipped with toilets?
Yes, in the Sala Bettina there are unisex toilets, also for people with disabilities.
Is there a food court in the Fuseum?
