Museo Matris Domini is located in the most ancient part of the religious building in via Locatelli in downtown Bergamo, and opened to the public back in the year 2000. Here you can admire about 20 pieces of fresco, divided into two groups.

The first one includes the most ancient frescoes, hosted in a large hall called “Refettorio vecchio – Old Refectory”; on the other hand, the second group comes from the apse of the ancient Romanesque church of the monastery, and consists of those frescoes that survived the baroque renovation works underwent by the church during the XVIII Century.
