The abbey was founded in 1007 by the Count of Mantua Tedaldo di Canossa (Matilde's paternal grandfather), who dedicated it to himself and his late wife Willa. We'll discover
the passing of time inside the monastery through the monks discipline, their
habits and how they guarded, copied and made the ancient knowledge be immortal.
The main subject of the itinerary is the evolution in space and time of a millenium in this important christian abbatial community, one of the biggest in Medieval Italy.
The medieval church was ribuilt from Giulio Romano in 1540. The abbot Gregorio Cortese called to work Veronese artists such as Girolamo Bonsignori and Paolo Veronese.
