La Monaca di Monza Exhibition

The Nun of Monza

An important exhibition dedicated to the historic figure of Marianna De Leyva, better known as the Nun of Monza, will be held at the Serrone of the Monza Royal Villa. It is the first time in Monza in which such an exhibition project regarding this emblematic figure will take place in Monza. 


Thanks to an immersive and exciting arrangement, this exhibition itinerary displays a selection of paintings, carvings, documents, videos and illustrations created on purpose for this exhibition in order to find out about the life story of a person that inspired one the most important characters of Alessandro Manzoni's great work, plus to provide a clear immage of the status of women in the early modern period and particularly in monasteries.
