Visit the Museum
The Museum of PRECINEMA – The Minici Zotti Collection is situated in Prato della Valle 1/A in Padua on the top floor of the Palazzo Angeli. To enter, ring the doorbell and go upstairs to the third floor. You will see shadowy silhouettes of people lining the stairwell as you go up towards the Collection. There is an elevator, but as the Palazzo Angeli dates from the end of the 16th Century the building can cause some mobility obstacles. If you have reduced mobility and require assistance please contact the Museum.

The Museum of PRECINEMA unfortunately does not have enough available space for workshops; therefore a publication entitled “The Visual Language Exercise Book” has been created for school groups. The publication is complementary and will be given to the teacher during the guided tour of the museum.
The Museum of PRECINEMA is a special place that allows you to be hands-on with the exhibits, helping you to understand the origins of the visual language that led to the birth of Cinema. Fundamentally, it is an educational mediator, which, with the collaboration of the teacher, means that students are active participators rather than passive spectators. The Museum adjusts to serve to the demands of each individual class.
