The Depero Museum

The Depero Museum in Trento, Italy holds over 3000 objects which were gifted to the city by the Futurist artist/designer in 1957. Fortunato Depero's work (1892-1960) covers a broad range of art and design disciplines, ranging from stage/costume design, to furniture to graphic design. Designboom visited the museum and has put a substantial image collection on their excellent blog:
