Bergamo Giardini e Dimore

MORONI PALACE

HISTORY

The palace was built by the same Moroni family between 1636 and 1666 is in the heart of the Upper Town of Bergamo. The facade along via di Porta Dipinta looks very extended and sober, in stark contrast to the Baroque style left by G.G. Barbelli, author of the frescoes that decorate most of the rooms and from which the same subjects are named: room of the Golden Age, the Giants, Apotheosis of Hercules and finally the Gerusalemme Liberata. In the nineteenth century all the main floor was modernized, as well as a radical transformation of some rooms, with tapestries, frescoes and decorations that show well the taste and lifestyle of the nineteenth century. The house, became in 2009 a Museum Foundation, maintained its peculiarities of lived house and is therefore fully furnished and its excellence is undoubtedly attributable to the collection of painting, especially  Lombard, including masterpieces by G.B. Moroni, Bernardino Luini, Giambettino Cignaroli and Cesare Tallone. There is a large garden terrace that extends starting from the inner balcony and includes a medieval tower, the elegant parterre and a section as "kitchen garden".
