Overview

The Palazzo Chiericati has been the historic home of the Civic Museum since 1855 and now houses the city's collections of paintings, sculptures and applied arts from the thirteenth to the twentieth centuries. A masterpiece of Palladio's early maturity (1550), the building not only has decorations from that period but also holds important documents on Vicenza's art history. The Museum of Palazzo Chiericati reopened the Palladian wing on December 2013, after the restoration works. On the main floor, the visitor can enjoy the works of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, contemporary to the construction of the building. The attic hosts the Bequest of Marquis Giuseppe Roi: his personal collection of paintings, drawings and engravings from the fifteenth to the twentieth century, set in a charming display of house-museum. On the ground floor the visitor can admire, in a temporary exhibition, a selection of masterpieces of the collection not currently on display: Paolo Veneziano, Memling, Montagna, Fogolino, Sansovino, Tintoretto, Maffei and Pittoni. In the basement are located the works donated to the museum by the sculptor Nereo Quagliato.

This masterpiece by Andrea Palladio stands in the heart of Vicenza. It strikes with its pure lines and the statues lining the top. Inside is a picture gallery on five levels, from Roman to modern art, and the rooms have magnificent frescoes and decorations. Among...More

This palace is a landmark at Vicenza, especially due to its location at one edge of the most important street axis at Vicenza: the Corso Palladio

The museum holds a significant collection of Renaissance master painters, more than I would have expected in a mid-size town.
