  • Worth a visit are the 2 frescoed rooms that you visit the convent of San Paolo. In particular, the Abbess is frescoed by Correggio and is beautiful but equally impressive is the adjacent frescoed by Heralds. Not to be missed!

  • Spectacular room, apparently a copy of camera degli sposi by Mantegna, worth to visit and to stay with the upturned nose, to admire these magnificent frescoes

  • This is not the first time that we return to see it and it won't be the last, but each time the wonder we feel always remains the same; We delude ourselves that suddenly strikes the spark to understand its meaning but ... its significance remains mysterious. The room, almost cubic, is decorated with frescoes of the dome alone because the walls, not bearing traces of paintings, they must have been originally covered with tapestries, according to a widespread practice in the sixteenth century. It was not until 1800 when passed to the press in a volume Bodoni trilingual exclusive and refined, that the room of Correggio brought the wonders which contained, stimulating the appetites of the Frenchmen became Meanwhile the true gentlemen of the Duchy of Parma, Piacenza and Guastalla. And appetites were so strong as to induce a few years later, the Emperor requesting the transport in France. The Musée Napoléon was ready to host it, but who knows what condition would come, as the technologies of the time were those that were. Luckily for us this project fell through due to the misfortunes of war campaigns of Bonaparte. This is the case, one of the few, when war prevented the catastrophic loss of a great work of art. Not to be missed! worth the trip!

  • I love this place. It is worth a visit.
  • You enter the structure from a pleasant tree lined drive immediately to the rooms of the Abbess Giovanna da Piacenza where he remains amazed by the extraordinary pictorial decorations by Correggio which this fresco, fully mature humanistic language officially introduces in Parma. Absurd continued closures that make it extremely difficult to visit to the occasional tourist arriving for a day in town. @gargio76

  • Must in the city, you will envy the Abbess who was none other than the master Correggio as a Decorator of your staff breakfast nook! Unfortunately poorly signposted and invisible on the road, the entrance to be found to the right of the garden; the bgt has a ridiculously low price and you will find it closed on Sun and Mon.

  • For lovers of art and emotion. Only 2 rooms, but worth the trip. Attention to these times.

  • The path in the rooms is very short, but arrived at the last room, you will be enchanted by the beauty.
