Castelvecchio Museum

The Castelvecchio Museum is located in the eponymus castle, built between XIV and XIV century. I have posted about the attached "Ponte" quite a few times, see here.
The museum was restored by Carlo Scarpa, one of the leading italian architects of the XX century. Between 1959 and 1973 Scarpa, with his unique architectural style, enhanced both the appearance of the building and the exhibits. 
One of the main museums in town, it displays a wide collection of statues, sculptures, objects. 
Paintings include masterpieces of Mantegna, Bellini, Pisanello.

Carlo Scarpa did a great job restoring the castle. It looked like it's in a great condition.

Love the B&W effect.
