The Museum of Palazzo Pretorio

The Museum of Palazzo Pretorio

If I had to imagine to visit a old medieval palace, I would think of it as Palazzo Pretorio: austere and imposing outside,  rich of masterpieces inside.

When I used to pass in front of it before its re-opening, I always asked myself “What’s inside this beautiful building?“. Now, from the moment it was restored, my curiosity has been satisfied. And I think that calling Palazzo Pretorio as a simple “museum” is very reducing. It is a complex and  complete organism: a beautiful building and a rich museum; together they allow dealing with a travel trough history, not only of the city, but also of ourselves. Every time I visit it, indeed, I ask myself about the life of centuries ago, the women condition, the attention to childhood… All the achievements of modern times have an origin in the past.

And what about if the power passed through a stick? And if everybody believed in miracles, how would the world change? Is it possible to exorcise a torment through art? These are some of the questions I think of while in front of the artworks in Palazzo Pretorio. Because art is never an end in itself, especially in Prato.
