Franz Fromm was a German businessman who moved to Meran/Merano with his family in 1905, where he later bought the Villa Freischütz, built in 1909. The villa became the new home for him, his family and for his passionately collected pieces of art.
Thanks to the benefactress, his granddaughter Rosamaria Navarini (1926-2013), the collection was kept until today. It was her will to transform the villa into a museum and to open the treasures to the public.
The villa itself is considered a typical building of the "golden age" of Meran/Merano and contains a varied and valuable collection of arts and crafts. The objects and histories presented in the exhibition interweave into a portrait of a typical bourgeois family of the period.
