Palazzo Sturm

Palazzo Sturm, from whose lookout you can enjoy a magnificient view over 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 silk merchant, was built in the mid-eighteenth century. The building has more than seventy rooms spread over seven levels and decorated by the Veronese painter Giorgio Anselmi in about 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. These frescoes are now, once again, admirable thanks to a renovation campaign that took place in 2018.
Currently the palace houses the Museo della Ceramica Giuseppe Roi, which collects collections of ancient ceramics, the Museo della Stampa Remondini, dedicated to typography and chalcography of the famous family of graphic entrepreneurs.
The Remondini family, a dynasty from Bassano, is responsible for what can be considered the world's first major image. An industrial giant that made its fortune between the 17th and 19th centuries, focusing on originality, quality and exports. Their engravings imposed iconographic models that contributed to give an almost universal visual image to stories, places and even cults.
