The mysteries of the Cathedral. Wonders in the labyrinth of knowledge
via della Prevostura 7 (retro della Cattedrale)
From 7 April to 7 July 2018 opening of the new Kronos - Museum of the Cathedral - which integrates an extraordinary path of ascent that, through secret places, will lead up to the dome of the Cathedral and an exhibition that will bring to light some of the most precious medieval illuminated codes, like the "Il Libro del Maestro".
From spring 2018, Kronos - Museo della Cattedrale will present a new exhibition, with an independent entrance from via Prevostura, which will allow access, for the first time, from the gardens on the back of the Cathedral's apses. To welcome visitors there will be a video showing the story of the Piacenza bishopric complex from the 4th century, until the current cathedral is built. The hall of the sculptures, that of the silver and that of the wooden furnishings will be an introduction to the small picture gallery where some precious altarpieces will be kept, such as the "diecimila martiri crocifissi" by Elisabetta Sirani, the "Madonna of Zitto" by Giovanni Battista Tagliasacchi, "Morte of San Francesco Saverio" by Robert De Longe, the "San Gerolamo e l'angelo" by Guido Reni in dialogue with an extraordinary Achrome by Piero Manzoni from the MCM Mazzolini collection. From here, the path to the dome will begin. In the anteroom of the upper sacristy, a video, with an interview with Valerio Massimo Manfredi, will introduce the five sections of the exhibition of codes.
After the visit to the Code, the ascent towards the dome of Guercino begins.
