Explore a small-but-varied collection of medieval paintings, sculptures, weapons, and ornamental objects alongside modern art at Museo di Castelvecchio, housed in the 14th century castle of the same name. Between 1959 and 1973, modernist architect Carlo Scarpa restored and enhanced the castle, adding his own features and creating special fixtures to hold some of the artworks. The layout resembles a modern art gallery, rather than a historical museum, with ample space to appreciate each artifact. A fortified, red-brick bridge attached to the castle provides sweeping views of the river and surrounding countryside.

カステルヴェッキオは、現在では市立美術館となってます。 市立美術館は14~18世紀のヴェローナ、ヴェネチア派の絵画や彫刻が中心のコレクションです。 最初のうちはかなり古い絵画が多く、その後マンテーニャの『聖家族』、ベリーニの『聖母子』、ティントレットの作品も続き素晴らしいコレクションです。 市立美術館からアディジェ川、スカリジェロ橋を望めるところがあり絶景でした。 スカリジェロ橋は特徴的な形で渡る... more »Castelvecchio is now a municipal museum of art. The Municipal Museum of Art is a collection of 14th and 18th-century Verona and Venetian paintings and sculptures. At first there were many fairly old paintings, followed by Mantegna's Holy Family, Bellini's Virgin and Child, and Tintoret's works. There was a view of the Adige River and the Scaligero Bridge from the Municipal Museum of Art, and it was a superb view. The Scaliello Bridge can also be crossed in a distinctive way.
Very interesting, right on the river with amazing artifacts and religious paintings. The museum oozes authenticity, so not only are the pieces amazing but the building and its history as well. You feel like you are stepping back in time. The staff is very helpful also, you can wander as long as you like ...
Such a wonderful building. It cost €6 per person I believe. They had cheaper prices for children. The castle is impressive in scale and the artwork within is astounding. If you do have children with you, if you walk over the bridge crossing, you can visit a small play area and a very shallow water feature. It is clean, well maintained and close to the Arena. Highly recommended for everyone to visit.
