MUSEUMS IN PARMA

Pinacoteca “Giuseppe Stuard” (Art Gallery):
is housed in the ex Benedictine Monastery of San Paolo, in Borgo Parmiginanino. The renewed structure was opened in 2002 and the convention complex has become a cultural pole of the City and the seat of the “City Museums.” The exhibition route unfolds through 22 different ambiences on two floors and includes more than 300 works.


Storica Spezieria di S. Giovanni Evangelista (Historical Apothecary Shop):
is located at N°1 Borgo Pipa, next to the Benedictine Monastery. The Apothecary Shop exists since 1201 and was run by the Benedictines until the end of 1766. It was then re-opened to the public in 1959. The present day structure dates back to the 17th Century and still has original wooden furnishings.


Camera della Badessa (Camera del Correggio):
walking around the Benedictine convent, in Via Melloni, visitors will come across the so called Camera della Badessa, a private apartment of Badessa Giovanna from Piacenza, with its frescoes by Antonio Allegri, better known as Correggio, dating back to between 1514 and 1519; here he produced one of the absolute masterpieces of 16th Century painting.


Palazzo della Pilotta (Pilot Building):
dominating Piazza della Pace in the very heart of the Ducal of Parma with its magnificence. The name comes from a game called the “Pelota” which was played in the courtyards. The external structure makes it look like an unfinished addition of more volume and construction, initiated in the second half of the 16th Century and carried out until the end of the changes of the 1700’s. Housed in its vast interior visitors can enjoy the National Archaeological Museum, the Palatina Library, the National Gallery (particularly important for its artworks from the 16th Century, containing some amazing masterpieces) and the marvellous Farnese Theatre with its wooden structure dating back to 1617/18.
