Discover three Verona’s museums to visit to


In Verona there are a lot of museums, some tell the story of the city and its surroundings, some are devoted to art or archeology and nature.

 

Castelvecchio Museum

 

The Castelvecchio Museum is one of the most important museums in Verona, which occupies the military Castle built in the 13th century by the famous family Scaligera.
In the 50 '- 70' of the 20th century the Castle was renovated by a famous italian architect Carlo Scarpa, and after converted into a museum which historic halls presented the collections of

 

  • medieval art (marbles, objects and medals)
  • Renaissance
  • Modern art.

Visiting the Museum of Castelvecchio is therefore not only a great opportunity to see works of art, but also to visit the interior of a perfectly preserved ancient castle.

 

 

International Center of Photography Scavi Scaligeri

 

The International Center of Photography is located in an archaeological site that was recovered in 1982 and since that was hosting the photo exhibitions.
Visiting this place is a good opportunity to make the leap into the past by walking along the old Roman roads, admiring the rests of the marvellous mosaics and the remains of Roman houses.

 

The Gallery of Modern Art "Achille Forti"

 

The Gallery of Modern Art “Achille Forti” is located in the Palazzo della Ragione just behind the Piazza delle Erbe and the Torre dei Lamberti. This one of the most historical palaces of Verona was built in the late 12th century. The Gallery of Modern Art “Achille Forti” was founded thanks to Achille Forti, the botanical came from the middle-class family, that left most of his estate to citizens of Verona.
The collection has grown and now has about 1,400 works of art.

Today, we have mentioned only a few museums of Verona, but there are many others that attract the interest of tourists and citizens of Verona including the Museum Lapidary Maffei, the Archaeological Museum at the Roman Theatre, the Museum of the frescoes' GB Cavalcaselle at the tomb of Juliet, Juliet's House and Natural History Museum.
