Currently Palazzo Viani Dugnani, completely renovated in its layout, houses the painting and sculpture collections.

The sculpture section includes the plaster cast gallery which houses 340 works by the impressionist sculptor Paolo Troubetzkoy (1866-1938) and the significant groups of works by Giulio Branca (1850-1926) - representative of the nineteenth-century celebratory and historical re-enactment sculpture - and Arturo Martini (1889 -1947), considered the most important Italian sculptor between the two wars.

The Landscape Museum is a cultural institution deeply linked to the territory of Lake Maggiore and its back valleys. This bond, which is the basis of its constitution, has been consolidated in more than a century of life and is also the foundation of its mission.The main exhibition site of the Museum is Palazzo Viani Dugnani in Verbania Pallanza, in Via Ruga, 44, which houses the Troubetzkoy Gipsoteca, the sculpture collection, the Pinacoteca and temporary exhibitions.
