In the historic center of Bergamo’s hilltop city, the impressive patrician home of the Barons Scotti reveals a 17th century look, but it has medieval origins. Sumptuous salons with rich decorations and precious furnishings compose the interior, while an evocative courtyard terrace overlooks the English-style garden with a splendid panorama.
The Friends of the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum Association have organized a visit to this splendid aristocratic home for its members. To welcome us will be the current owners, the Guffanti Scotti.
After this, we will go to the Accademia Carrara at the foot of the hill. The gallery has reopened, recently, after seven years of complete renovation and restoration. The visit (before and after lunch) will be personally guided by the curator, Dr. Giovanni Valagussa. The numerous collections – especially the pictorial ones – make it one of the most important museums of Italy.
Time permitting, the visit will terminate at a bank’s exhibit spaces where a series of paintings by Lorenzo Lotto, recently restored, will be discussed with us by the restorer, Delfina Fagnani Sesti.
