International Naval Museum of Imperia
The Imperia International Naval Museum, founded in 1980 by commander Flavio Serafini, is divided into 14 sections that preserve a precious heritage of evidence of Ligurian and national maritime traditions from the 18th to the 20th century. There is a rich collection of on-board instruments, materials and tools related to the tradition of wooden shipbuilding and its men, marine and uniform paintings. The models, and mercantile and military aspects are noteworthy, enriched by the scale models of Léon Perret, artist and modeller, who lived between the nineteenth and twentieth century, to whom a room is dedicated. Particular emphasis is given to materials and relics concerning ocean sailing and the most coveted challenge by navigators: the rounding of Cape Horn.
