Museo Adriano Bernareggi 360° virtual tour

The Diocesan Museum "Adriano Bernareggi" displays objects of religious and liturgical worship, mostly works from the territory of Bergamo.

Original core of the collection was assembled during the 1930s by Adriano Bernareggi, bishop of Bergamo at that time. It has been carefully preserved and extended during the past decades and since 2000, it occupies three floors and 20 rooms in the Renaissance palace of Bassi Rathgeb built Peter Isabello in 1520. Luckily enough, we've managed to get permission to take a few 360 images inside the museum to show marvelous room interiors with masterworks of  Renaissance and Baroque painters.
