San Giovanni Evangelista

The monastic complex of San Giovanni Evangelista is made up of a church, a monastery, and the historical San Giovanni pharmacy. The origins date back to the 10th Century, although the façade is Baroque in style. The bell-tower on the right-hand side was added in 1613. The church, with classical heritage, has an original Romanesque layout -you can see the pillars covered in gray stone with sculpted capitals by Antonio da Parma. Another piece of great value is the Wooden Choir by M. Zucchi, the Gianfranco brothers, and Pasquale Testa (1556). The monastic library is full of 15th Century rooms decorated with frescoes. It contains around 20,000 books, including codices painted in miniature from the 15th and 16th Centuries.

Museo Archeologico Nazionale

Founded in Parma in 1760 by Don Filippo di Borbone, this museum of antiques was opened to keep the finds of the excavations that took place in Velleja, a small Roman city on the Piacentine Appennino. The most prestigious pieces from the city were taken by the French in the 19th Century. Relics of great historic and artistic value were given back only after the Congress of Vienna. Since the Unification of Italy one of the best centers for study and research of paleontology has been here. The collections are now arranged over two floors. On the first floor are the pieces from other areas and the second floor has the prehistoric and protohistoric sections as well as an area dedicated to Parma and the surrounding area from the Roman era. See the website for more information.
