Municipality of Brescia


Brescia is a city in the Lombardy region of northern Italy. Today the population of Brescia is about two hundred thousand – the same number as at the end of the post-war period. It is the second most important city in Lombardy and the capital of a province with a population of over a million, and with a territory of which more than half is mountainous, it has become one of the most industrialised areas of Italy.

Since the beginning of the XX century, in the presence of vigorous industrial growth, the city has been expanding. 

Brescia combines the efficiency of a modern town with the attractions of a historic city full of art treasures and offers the visitor the pleasure of strolling through a fascinating urban setting which reveals its past history. In the historical centre of the city you can find one of the major museum complexes in Italy: Santa Giulia – the City Museum with 12,000 sq. m. of exhibition space – which was opened to the public in 1999 and since 2011 it is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List for the serial site Longobards in Italy.
