Palazzo Vistarino in Pavia is a space used for cultural events like exhibitions and concerts. It is situated in the heart of city, next to the river Ticino.
The building is from the 18th century and served as the residence of a noble family. It was built as a “villa of delight”, with frescoed rooms, spaces for music, reading and conversation, and a park with a chapel and stables.
Nowadays the building is owned by the University of Pavia. After extensive renovations between 2007 and 2013 it became the seat of the Alma Mater Ticinensis foundation, which organises training courses, conferences, seminars and concerts.
