The Amedeo Lia Museum is located in La Spezia, and it is sheltered by the church and convent of the Friars of San Francesco da Paola. The museum was inaugurated no sooner than 1996, and its opening was possible by grace of Amedeo Lia and his family, who donated their extensive art collection to the museum.

Thus, the museum is home to an extensive collection of works dating from the 13th to the 18th century, with exhibits such as sculptural and pictorial works, as well as decorative items, by Italian and foreign artists alike. Some of the highlights refer to a 13th century Madona and Child showcased in room I of the museum, to a collection of bronzes by students of celebrated names like Baccio Bandinelli, Ammannati and Giambologna (room X), and to a stunning yellow limestone sculpture from Cyprus which dates back to the 5th century BC (exhibited in room III).
