Bologna, Museo Medievale
 12 December 2015 - 28 March 2016


For the first time an exhibition dedicated to the theme of Bologna Confraternities, with a special focus on those of Santa Maria della Vita and Santa Maria della Morte. These confraternities were once located one in front of the other, the former having its seat at the Church of Santa Maria della Vita in via Clavature, and the latter extending between Via Marchesana, the Portico della Morte, along via dell’Archiginnasio and along the side of San Petronio.
Through some artistic and documentary records (paintings, illuminations, sculptures, ceramics, goldworks) the exhibition aims at retracing the history of these two confraternities.
On show over 50 works coming from important city institutions, such as Museo della Sanità e dell'Assistenza - once housing the Antico Ospedale di Santa Maria della Vita, Biblioteca dell'Archiginnasio, Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna, as well as Musei Civici d'Arte Antica (Museo Civico Medievale, Museo Davia Bargellini, Collezioni Comunali d'Arte) and loans from private collections.
