Art Museum

The works in the Picture Gallery, from religious and municipal institutions and donations by private citizens, number about 3000, including canvases by Giorgione and Titian, and offer an ample perspective of Venetian painting from the 14th to the 16th centuries.

The paintings, which follow a chronological path, were executed by the most important artists in Italian art history. Examples are the precious Cross, which Giotto painted in about 1300 for the famous Scrovegni Chapel, and paintings by Guariento, who was the first painter at the court of the Carrara family and who inaugurated the Paduan school.

The Art Museum also contains a collection of sculptures, with works by Briosco, Vittoria and Canova, from the 14th to the 18th centuries, and decorative and architectural fragments of inscribed stone tablets.
