Palazzo Agliardi

Installation Alessandra Baldereschi


Wunderkammer (in English “Room of Wonders”) is a German expression used to indicate specific locations where, between the 16th and 18th century, collectors used to keep extraordinary objects. We imagined a historical mansion where some contemporary elements insert old decors and valuable paintings. A harmonious exchange between the past and the present that enhances the mansion and its beauty.


Palazzo Agliardi, originally Martinengo Colleoni, is located at no.86 of Via Pignolo, in one of the Bergamo villages where, during the sixteenth century, important families of nobles and merchants chose to build their palaces. The residence comes with a large courtyard, three rooms decorated with eighteenth-century frescoes by Carlo Carlone and Federico Ferrario, the so-called neoclassical room and a bright central living room that opens onto a charming roof garden. A staircase leads to the recently restored, underlying stable.
