Through a body of works from Padua’s municipal museums, this book acquaints readers with the history of the famous city in northern Italy and gives an account of the wealth and diversity of its art treasures. The volume features objects from the collections of the Archaeological Museum (Museo Archeologico), showcasing artefacts from Antiquity to the Roman period. Also presented are works from the holdings of the Museum of Medieval and Modern Art (Museo d'Arte Medievale e Moderna), an institution that ranks with the richest art depositories in north-eastern Italy owing to its works of the Venetian School of painting from the 14th—18th centuries. Last but not least, the book shows artefacts from the Bottacin Museum (Museo Bottacin) that houses coins and medals dating from ancient times to the present, as well as a collection of 19th-century statuary.

The publication was issued to accompany the exhibition prepared by Villaggio Globale Int., Mogliano Veneto and Musei Civici di Padova held in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, November 1999 – February 2000.
