WHO WE ARE
Museo delle storie di Bergamo is managed by Fondazione Bergamo nella storia, founded in 2002 with the aim of protecting, enhancing and communicating in new ways the historical heritage and identity of the area of Bergamo.
The Foundation’s main project is Museo delle storie di Bergamo, a historical museum branched over several sites, that tells the evolution of the city and of the territory over the centuries from a political, economic, social and cultural point of view.
There are six places linked to the network of Museo delle storie:
Convento di San Francesco, the Foundation’s headquarters, with a large expository space for temporary exhibitions;
Palazzo del Podestà, with the Museum of the 16th Century;
Campanone in Piazza Vecchia;
Rocca, which houses the Museum of the 19th Century;
Museum of Donizetti;
Torre dei Caduti in the city centre designed by Piacentini.
Founded on a strong synergy of intentions between public institutions and private subjects, united by the desire to enhance and acquaint the city and its heritage, Museo delle storie di Bergamo realizes its commitment through permanent museums, exhibitions, initiatives and events, didactic activities, scientific research and popularisation.

“AMICI DEL MUSEO” (FRIENDS OF THE MUSEUM)
Since 1999 the Association Amici del Museo aims to promote and support the activity of the Museum also in collaboration with other associations or foundations pursuing the same purposes.
The Association therefore proposes to:
promote conferences, exhibitions, conventions and publications of historical interest;
acquire historical material through purchases, donations, legacies and loans;
increase the Museum’s library equipment, as well as its educational tools (books, audio-visuals, etc.)
organize study tours and visits to Italian and foreign historical sites and museums.
