Historical Museum - Venetian Age

Description

The “Museo Storico” session dedicated to the Venetian Age is really remarkable: in fact, it is not a “traditional” museum, but it is characterized by a series of multimedia tools allowing you to learn and have fun at the same time.

In the ancient Palazzo del Podestà, in Piazza Vecchia, you will listen to the past talking to you by means of paintings, manuscripts, maps and old documents, which magically become alive thanks to the newest technologies.

Come take a fantastic trip across the XVI Century, when Bergamo became part of a geographical new scenario, suddenly enlarged by the discovery of America and with the explorers’ sailings to the south end of Africa and towards the east. History itself will talk to you by voices, sounds, images, and environment reproductions: an overall narration, an intense and all-absorbing experience.


The Museum is divided into 7 thematic rooms, each one equipped with a multimedia system consisting of an integrated technology managing graphics, animations, sounds, movements. Thanks to the information sheets, the 30 tablets integrating the itinerary and the QR codes, you can customize your visit, as you like.

The Palazzo del Podestà building housing the museum is located on an area when also some settlements dating back to the VI-V Century B.C. were found. Right before entering the museum, you will spot an archaeological site going down up to 2.5 meters deep.

Going from room to room, you will personally take part in the evolution of XVI Century. You will admire the maps getting more and more detailed after the discovery of America; you will travel along the old routes, with their dangers and their accidents; you will observe Bergamo when it still had no walls, along with the people living there; you will experience the many trades and exchanges of spices and books, which were already popular due to the invention of movable type.

Last but not least, you will find yourself in the crowded meadow of Sant’Alessandro, where the Trade Fair Market used to take place, surrounded by its sounds and its voices.
