I spent the most amazing hour and a half at this wonderful museum, looking at and hearing played instruments from the early 16th to the early 20th century (and a couple of reproduction numbers, including one 2015 copy of the 16th century harpsichord it was sitting next to). The instruments are part of the collection of Luigi Tagliavini, a Bolognese organist, harpsichordist and musicologist who gifted his collection of over 70 instruments to be displayed at the church of San Colombano. The instruments are absolutely fascinating, and unbelievably beautiful. If you can, try to book into a tour with a guide who plays the instruments, as I did - absolutely breathtaking! (my tour was booked through the ARCA language school, which I am currently attending.
