Palazzo del Podestà

Description

In the shadow of the Campanone (Civic Tower), the Palazzo del Podestà tells a story that has distant origins: on the ground floor, immerse yourself in Roman Bergamo with archaeological excavations, and then go up to the first floor and admire the wonderful frescoes of the Renaissance cavaedium.


Here, you will find the 16th Century Museum, a multimedia and interactive path consisting of images, sounds and suggestions. We invite you to take a trip back in time, amid prestigious buildings and historic convents, to discover the stories of noble families fighting for power, ambitious merchants in search of fortune, great leaders at the service of the Republic of Venice. Immersed in the life of the sixteenth century, you will witness the construction of the Walls, an indelible sign of Venetian domination, which have now become UNESCO heritage.
