Show sight on map

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, literature and the arts. The academy was founded with the intention of bringing together local writers and scholars to discuss literature, music and art. It replaced the previous Academies that had sprung up in the city: that of the Sleepers, dissolved in 1562 because it was suspected of heresy and several members were tried, that of the Humili, which had a religious character, and finally that of the Knights, formed only by nobles.
