Our partners of the International Cultural Centre "Luigi Einaudi" of San Severo (Italy) have inaugurated the first museum in the country dedicated to the figure of Emperor Charles V.
Here, visitors can learn about the history of the emperor, the people associated with him, the lands he visited and the lands he administered from the publications published by the Einaudi Centre and the studies presented, with unpublished documents, at conferences in Italy and Europe.
In this museum you can also find halberds, morions, imperial symbols, Renaissance clothes of exquisite workmanship - which are the pride of the historical procession that is held annually in San Severo to remember his figure, as well as old maps and parchments, documents of twinning with other towns, photographic reviews, plaques and gifts received at numerous meetings, etc. In addition, it also exhibits its great jewel: the great marble book with the profile and signature of Charles V.
The museum also has a space dedicated to gastronomy, of which the emperor was so fond. Every year, the Noble Academy of Ancient Flavours, order of Saint Severus Soupetta, remembers one of the emperor's favourite dishes.
The museum is open to the public free of charge, but reservations are required to comply with anti-Covid regulations.
