Palazzo Moroni


The gate of Palazzo Moroni opens at no.12 of Via Porta Dipinta: it is one of the highest expressions of the seventeenth-century architecture in Bergamo. The very simple front, just like the courtyard where the statue of Neptune dominates, is in stark contrast to the Baroque style of the interiors, decorated with frescoes by Barbelli on the impressive staircase and main rooms, complete with furniture and works of art that bear witness to the Moroni family’s love for collecting.  A large garden terrace extends suddenly from the internal balcony, and includes a medieval tower, elegant parterres and an “ortaglia” (plot of land) section.
