Founded in 1936, Il Palazzo Comunale di Bologna le Collezioni Comunali d?arte (Bologna?s Municipal Art Collection) is located in what was once the winter apartments of the Cardinal Papal Legates on the first floor of Palazzo Comunale. The rooms are decorated with friezes and ceiling paintings from the sixteenth to the early nineteenth century. This is a major collection of paintings, furniture, furnishings, house hold goods, from major donations made to the City of Bologna primarily during the nineteenth and early twentieth century.

Take note of ?Genius? (see photo #5) by Giacomo de Maria (1762-1838), a Bolognese Neoclassical sculptor. This 1797 work stands in an elaborate presentation piece at the far end of the Galleria Vidoniana, Room #4, in the Collezioni Comunali d'Arte.
