Pagazzano Castle

Description

Can a stronghold be able to inspire the creativity of an outstanding poet?

Yes, it can! The famous Italian poet Francesco Petrarca spent some time here and worked on its Triumphi right in these rooms.

Culture has never left the castle, thanks to the amazing museum located inside it: the fortress used to protect the people, now it protects their memory!

You will also find a very interesting exhibition describing the rural life featuring the surrounding countryside for centuries, while with the multimedia part of the museum you’ll have the chance to explore the history of the fortification system between the Venice Republic and Milan’s territories.

Even today, these defensive buildings draw the visitors’ attention and are considered as much peculiar and typical of the Bergamo flatland as the cornfields or the long tree-lined roads.
