A historical and artistic jewel

The cloister, attached to the Sanctuary, was part of a Franciscan monastic complex and is one of the few examples of monastic architecture still existing in the Verona area. For reasons unknown, it was ignored by local art historiography, it is a surprising historical and artistic jewel.

The forty-five lunettes in the portico in correspondence with the arches are covered with frescoes and tell about “the life and miracles of St Francis”. The frescoes were painted by Bernardino Muttoni the Elder and his son.

A little treasure of faith and art

Built certainly before 1500, this humble church contains a remarkable little treasure of faith and art. More than thirty paintings illustrate a significant moment in Veronese style at the end of the 15th century and the first decades of the 16th century, a moment of transition from Gothic to Renaissance style with clear Mantegnani influences. The most prominent are: the Madonna and Child, San Rocco and San Sebastiano.

Ideal place for civil weddings, art exhibitions and concerts of classical music

Many of the events organised in Bussolengo find their rightful place in the precious setting of Villa Spinola, following its recent renovation. It dates back to the 15th century, is surrounded by tall trees and offers a marvellous view over the Adige Valley and Valpolicella. Its location, combined with its elegant architecture, makes it an ideal venue to celebrate civil weddings, to organise conferences, art exhibitions and classical concerts.

On summer evenings, it is pleasant to take part in shows, concerts and film projections on the portico and in the park surrounding the villa. For some years now, in mid-August, the back façade of the villa has been the backdrop for the three-dimensional image shows, water games, lights and music.
