Centro Culturale e museo Elisarion


In 1927 the Estonian-born artist and poet Elisar von Kupffer (1872-1942) built his Minusio Villa respecting the principals of the Klarismus movement (in English: “Clarity”), a dualism ideology developed by himself in contrast with Christianity and founded on the base of chaos being in contradistinction to clarity. The small museum hosts a library with published literature based on the “Clarist Order”. In one of the halls, dedicated to E. von Kupffer, several of his art works are exhibited.

Visits are possible with advanced reservation.
