#buonconsiglioonline - Torrione da Basso

the story, with short videos of the Castle and its collections

Meetings and conferences

#buonconsiglioadomicilio is the new format of the Castello del Buonconsiglio.

Short videos of provincial monuments and collections to tell you about the Buonconsiglio Castle and its collections in these difficult days, when we must stay at home to fight the virus.

Every week the curators of the museum will propose contributions to discover the beauty of our castles.

Accompanied by Chiara Facchin, this episode is dedicated to the Torrione da Basso (lower defensive tower): a circular room decorated between 1532 and 1533 by Marcello Fogolino who created his masterpiece here.

The iconographic program of the room, inspired by characters and events of the Roman history, focuses on the exaltation of the ancient empire, from which the modern monarchs had to draw inspiration and example for the creation of their "imperio". Direction by Alessandro Ferrini.
