It is a charming structure that houses a precious collection of frescoes torn from the facades of the palaces and churches of the city of Verona. This extraordinary exhibition finds its home inside the ancient deconsecrated monastery of San Francesco al Corso, giving the museum a unique and evocative atmosphere.
This museum is more than just a collection of art.
It has a deep connection with the famous love story of Romeo and Juliet, immortalized by Shakespeare. It is said that this is the place where Juliet was buried and where the dramatic epilogue of their tragic story took place.
The exhibition includes a visit to the crypt,
which houses an ancient stone sarcophagus, which is considered by tradition as the tomb of Juliet.
The museum’s exhibition goes beyond the frescoes, offering visitors the opportunity to admire valuable paintings, Renaissance bronzes and even some ancient Roman amphorae, which have been discovered in the basement and carefully preserved. This variety of works of art allows visitors to immerse themselves in different eras and artistic styles, enriching the cultural experience.
