The Accademia dei Concordi is a cultural institute in Rovigo established around 1580 starting from the project conceived by Count Gaspare Campo, a great lover of science, letters and arts. The academy was born with the intention of bringing together local writers and scholars to discuss literature, music and art. It replaced the previous Academies that arose in the city: that of the Addormentati, dissolved in 1562 because suspected of heresy and several members were tried, that of the Humble, which had a religious character, and finally that of the Knights, formed only by nobles.
