Music

The charm of music in the history of art. From the representations in the Romanesque capitals of the Ghirlandina Tower to the frescoes in the Treasure Hall of Palazzo Costabili in Ferrara or to frescoes of the "Concerto" in Villa Caldogno. Images of musicians, musical instruments, sheet music, concerts, composers and violin making workshops.
