Compact and exhaustive, the Official Guide to the Museo di Castelvecchio in Verona is the essential tool for exploring the Scaliger castle, its history and the wide collections that it offers to visitors today.
The volume consists of three complementary sections. The first recounts the history of Castelvecchio through the voices of the museum's curators, from its foundation in the Middle Ages as a garrison for the city to its new use as a museum, from its restoration by Carlo Scarpa to the establishment of the current collection. Subsequently, a series of cards presents the most significant works preserved in the building, in a linear path discovering Veronese, Veneto and foreign art from the Middle Ages to the modern age. Finally, the third and last section sheds light on the collections housed in the castle but not on permanent display.
