    The splendid Palazzo del Podesta, now bare unfortunately it was used as a theater of an interactive exhibition about printing in the 16th century. While not lovers of multimedia exhibit we were pleasantly surprised by the unique nature of what is being proposed in this building. The exhibition offers an insight into the lives of Bergamo in the sixteenth century, rebuilt through the words and the comments of those who lived and visited the city at the time of Venetian rule. They are also very valuable volumes and typographical tools exhibited in the same period.
