"Palazzo Spada"

Past Live Lecture on September 19th 2022 at with Liz Lev

Come and Discover:


Liz Lev will present one of her favorite museums in the city, formed from the collections of two brother cardinals who, while powerful and successful, were never raised to the papacy.

With more limited means than the Borghese and Pamphilj families, Bernardino and Virgilio Spada put together a very personal and brilliant collection, revealing their attachment to Bologna, their own “discovered” artistic genius, and their remarkable connection to Galileo Galilei.
