Ovo Pinto Museum

Overview

Thousands of hand-painted eggs

Art, creativity and nature united in an original and unique combination. This is how you can describe the small Ovo Pinto Museum in Civitella del Lago, a delightful exhibition dedicated to the art of egg decoration, curated by the Ovo Pinto Cultural Association since 1982. Since 2005, the museum has collected thousands of eggs of all animal species, from hens to ostriches, decorated with geometric and floral designs, with religious and secular subjects. There are eggs dedicated to artistic movements such as Futurism, ones that pay homage to famous people such as Dante Alighieri and Alberto Sordi, and more creative eggs designed by school children. Each piece is displayed in showcases that you can admire all year round. 

Every year, from Easter to 1st May, the association organises the Ovo Pinto Exhibition-Competition in Civitella del Lago, in the province of Terni. The competition is open to everyone, professionals and amateurs alike, who want to express their creativity through this unique art form.
