The Philharmonic Accademy is located inside the 16th-century Palazzo Sanvenanzi. In 1627 it became the property of the Carrati Counts who started up the Accademy, which still exists today, in 1666. In 1770 the young Mozart took the entrance exam. Today the Academy contains many objects and instruments which belonged to famous musicians, ancient musical scores, and valuable portraits. The instruments and canvases on exhibition include a precious organ dating back to the end of the 17th Century with 350 organ pipes, a Respighi piano, and a portrait of the Patron Saint of the Accademia by Elisabetta Sirani. There is an important archive and library in the Accademia.
