Museo Civico Polironiano - Museum - Environments and Paths

PLACES

Museo Civico Polironiano - Museum - Environments and Paths

Walking up the Barberini staircase and continuing along the corridor, you can meet the palace of the abbot, with traces of frescoes of the '500. It attaches to the apartment of the Gonzagas, dukes of Mantua. Then you can see the dormitory of the monks and the large monastic library erected in 1790 by Abbot Mauro Mari. The neoclassical architect Paolo Pozzo built a high and bright environment, preceded by a vestibule. On the walls are still visible signs of the shelves containing the unique heritage of the monastery library. Along the corridor you reach the intersection with the third corridor. In the intersection of these two corridors, there are traces of a Resurrection, frescoed by a painter of Mantegna’s school. The last corridor begins with a room that housed the desk of the '400.
