Civic Museums at the Eremitani

Padova - Museum

The Civic Museums agli Eremitani are housed in the cloisters of the former convent of the Hermits. The friars were sent away from the complex by the Napoleonic suppression of 1806. The cloisters were restored according to the design by Franco Albini and Franca Helg. The Museum today houses the Art Gallery of the Museum of Medieval and Modern Art, with works by the great masters of Italian painting from '300 to ‘800. The most noteworthy works consist in the cross painted by Giotto, which used to be located in the Cappella degli Scrovegni, the frescoes by Pietro and Giuliano da Rimini which were removed from the Convent of the Eremitani and an important group of paintings on wood by Guariento, including the Angels from the Chapel of the Reggia Carrarese
