Title

Since 2009, the Art and History Library of San Giorgio in Poggiale has housed the rich book patrimony of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio as well as important contemporary artworks: Campo dei Fiori and the monumental Delocazione by Claudio Parmiggiani, and the cycle Cattedrale by PieroPizzi Cannella.
The Church of San Giorgio in Poggiale was realized between 1589 and 1633 by the architect Tommaso Martelli and it was partially destroyed during an aerial bombardment on 25 September, 1943. After being deconsecrated and deprived of its artworks the Church was about to be demolished between 1959 and 1962. The building was then acquired by the Cassa di Risparmio in Bologna and after an accurate restoration it was destined as a home for its collections.The Collection houses 100.000 books, mainly constituted by volumes about the local art and history; The photographic Library contains about 60.000 items, articulated in different archives, that testify the urban transformation of Bologna after the actualization of the city planning act in 1889.
