Civic Museum of Bassano del Grappa

The Civic Museum of Bassano del Grappa is one of the oldest museums in the Veneto. Housed since 1840 in the former convent complex of San Francesco, an iconic place in the city of Bassano del Grappa, over the centuries the museum has been enriched through donations, bequests and acquisitions. Thousands of historical-artistic and documentary testimonies, ranging from prehistory to the Renaissance up to reality painting and the experiments of contemporary masters, make the Civic Museum the favorite place to immerse yourself in the history and culture of the Bassano area through a visual story that unites past, present and future.

Among the best-known artists present in the collections are: Jacopo Bassano and his sons , a famous dynasty of painters of the Venetian Renaissance and of which the largest and most important collection in the world is preserved; Antonio Canova , among the greatest sculptors of all time, of whom an exceptional set of works and documents (sculptures, paintings, drawings, books and letters) allows us to tell the story of his genius and his creative process. The museum also preserves exceptional testimonies of great masters who have spanned the centuries: from Guariento to Lorenzo Lotto , from Artemisia Gentileschi to Giambattista Tiepolo , from Alessandro Magnasco to Francesco Hayez , as well as a rich archaeological collection of unique pieces in the world and an extraordinary collection of drawings and prints . A room is also dedicated to exhibitions on graphic masterpieces not usually exhibited to the public, and to in-depth studies on artists, themes or subjects of particular interest. Alongside the permanent collections, the museum periodically offers highly attractive temporary events and exhibitions which enrich the broad cultural and artistic panorama of the city of Bassano del Grappa.
