The Renaissance in European Perspective

The Renaissance was a cultural era that gave birth to some of the most important advances in human history. All these discoveries and creations would have been unimaginable without a broad and dynamic exchange across Europe at many levels. The Renaissance was an era of dialogue that extended over great distances and time. The exhibition in Zurich focuses on the question of cultural exchange processes and shows the Renaissance as a dynamic, pan-European phenomenon. Artworks, writings and instruments and objects of everyday life are displayed in the museum’s new exhibition rooms.
