Bergamo greets visitors with its Venetian Walls. Surrounded by rivers and lush, verdant
valleys, crossed by paths that widen to Parco dei Colli, the area's largest park, the city
looks like a lounge filed with art, culture and nature, with a fascinating and complex
history just waiting to be shared with others. The "upper and lower" city reveals a
mixture of pleasant surprises and unexpected encounters, such as those with
Gaetano Donizetti, the great composer of international renown, Bartolomeo Colleoni,
the Bergamo leader who served under the Republic of Venice and Lorenzo Lotto, among
the most famous Italian Renaissance artists who lived and worked in Bergamo for over
a decade.
