The Museum

The Museo Pietà Rondanini is located in the old Spanish Hospital in the Castle’s Courtyard of Arms. Following the decision to transform the old hospital into the new Museo della Pietà Rondanini, significant restorations were started 2013. The Museo della Pietà, with its sober and suggestive setting by architect Michele De Lucchi, was inaugurated. The last incomplete work by Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564), the Pietà is a meditation on death and the salvation of the soul. Left incomplete due to the death of Michelangelo, the Pietà is a testament to the last period of the great master's creative genius. A coin designed by Leone Leoni featuring a bust of Michelangelo cast in the late 16th century and a bronze portrait of the sculptor, based on his wax death mask and made by his pupil Daniele da Volterra are on exhibit together with the Pietà.
