Blue Virgin Mary

A 14th century sculpture from Verona

The exhibition Blue Virgin Mary. A 14th century sculpture from Verona, curated by Lucina Giacomelli, offers the opportunity to admire this magnificent sculpture. From 22 June the ancient effigy is situated in the renovated tour pathway of the museum in the Buonconsiglio Castle.

Recent restorations, carried out in collaboration with Trento's Cultural Heritage Directorate, have restored the sculpture to its wonderful original shade of colour, and have highlighted the original coat in azurite with gold decorations. From here the denomination “Blue Virgin Mary”.

As the director of the castle, Laura Dal Prà, says, the exhibition will inaugurate a new cultural proposal of the Buonconsiglio Castle, the “Cammei” project, that will show the public works belonging to the museum’s heritage.

The Madonna of the Rose, called today Blue Virgin Mary, is one of the few evidences of Verona’s tombstone sculpture of the fourteenth century in Trento”.

The documents of the time don't provide much information about the authors of this artwork, so its attribution is uncertain.
