The City Museum occupies, as well as the palace of the Bishop, the building of the Loggia della Ragione, built to house the City Council representatives and painted around the mid-sixteenth century. The first core of museum collections formed the early nineteenth century, but the museum was officially established at the end of that century, thanks to the legacies of Andrea Manera and Pacific Scomazzetto. Since the beginning of the twentieth century donations intensify, considerably increasing the institution's artistic and historical heritage. It now houses the archaeological section that documents the ancient origins of the City; the art gallery which exhibits paintings from the fifteenth century Contemporary Age (among which the works by Luca Giordano, Bernardo Strozzi and Bernardo Bellotto); Cornaro section with paintings, documents and personal objects of the queen; the treasure of the cathedral; Section Duse with design sketches, autograph letters, the scene of Divine portraits and dresses and Freya Stark section with some of his quirky objects and numerous photos taken from her.  &Nbsp;
