Palazzo Sturm

Palazzo Sturm, from whose belvedere you can enjoy an incomparable view of the Brenta river and the Ponte degli Alpini, was donated to the Municipality of Bassano by Baron Giovanni Battista Sturm von Hirschfeld in 1943. The precious residence commissioned by Vincenzo Ferrari, an important industrialist and traded in silk, it was built towards the middle of the 18th century.

The building has over seventy rooms spread over seven levels and decorated by the Veronese painter Giorgio Anselmi around 1760. The mythological and allegorical subjects, represented with a taste that recalls the manner of the so-called Roman-Bolognese Baroque triumphs, allude to the commercial and economic enterprises of the Ferrari family's manufacturing. These frescoes are now admirable again, thanks to an excavation campaign that took place in 2018.

Currently the building houses the Giuseppe Roi Ceramics Museum, which collects collections of ancient ceramics, the Remondini Print Museum, dedicated to the typography and chalcography of the famous family of graphic entrepreneurs.

To the Remondini, Bassano dynasty, we owe what can be considered the first world major of the image. An industrial giant that made its fortune between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, focusing on originality, quality and exports. Their engravings imposed iconographic models that helped to give an almost universal visual image to stories, places and even cults.
