Description

The Antoniano Museum, reopened in 1995, offers a unique journey through the artistic treasures created over the centuries for the Basilica and for the Veneranda Arca di sant’Antonio: paintings, sculptures, plaster casts, sacred vestments, tapestries, goldsmithery, until now little accessible to the public.
On display are authentic masterpieces of art: the lunette frescoed by Mantegna for the portal of the Basilica, the wooden inlays of the fifteenth century, the precious Navicella of German goldsmith’s art of the sixteenth century, the altarpieces of Tiepolo and Piazzetta, a rare liturgical vestment woven in Lyon in the eighteenth century.
