Comments

The Toy Horse Museum is the first and to date only museum in the world dedicated to the horse toy. The Museum is located in what was once the stables of the famous trotter Tornese that in the fifties was more times world champion. In 1969, the Cavalier Pietro Catelli, founder of the Artsana Group, bought the building and surrounding grounds and made it the headquarters of Artsana. On 14 April 2000, on the occasion of his eightieth birthday, wanting to leave a unique gift to his company and the Como area, inaugurated the Museum, displaying his collection of toy horses in the historic stable Tornese.

Toy Horse Museum: Description

"In 2000 Peter Catelli makes eighty. The candles on the cake is too much, there are. And then can not eat sweets and then decides to celebrate differently. He was a child who had not had many toys, think of giving himself and whoever wants to be near him, a toy horse. Not one, but ten, a hundred, a thousand, a museum of toy horses, to teach children how to turn off your computer and you create with your imagination. "

Luca Masia, Mr. Bean. The extraordinary life of an ordinary man. The museum occupies an area of 400 mq2 and exhibits a unique collection in the world: more than 650 toy horses made from the eighteenth century to date from around the world. A rocking or tricycle, to stick or spring, wood or cardboard, tin or cloth, each horse toy is unique work of ingenuity and imagination.
