Foundation Museum of Palazzo Moroni is located in the homonymous palace, under the Civic Rocca. The construction was ordered and built by Francesco Moroni in 1631 as a result of marriage with Lucrezia Roncalli, another noble family of Bergamo seventeenth century. The decorations were made by Giovanni Giacomo Barbelli a known painter cremasco. I realized people were inspired by the erudite contemporary Donato Calvi. The Palazzo Moroni art collection is very broad and diverse. Of great value are the works exhibited in the Lombard Renaissance paintings including "The Penitent Magdalene" Giampietrino, a pupil of Leonardo da Vinci and a "family portrait" of Bergamo Andrea Previtali. Also exceptional are the eighteenth-century console of the Ballroom, where you can admire the floor mosaics from Hadrian's Villa in Tivoli. Finally, the collection is enriched by ceramics made by some of the leading manufactures of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries: Meissen, Wedgwood, Sèvres and Capodimonte. Unforgettable are also gardens with Encircled terracing and a so-called "ortaglia", made during the nineteenth century, destined to agricultural crops. Today Palazzo Moroni, as well as being an important exhibition venue, hosting events Gala and luxury thanks to the aristocratic circles in perfect state of conservation.
