Music has always played a fundamental role in the city of Bologna. The Museo Bibliografico Musicale were made famous by some illustrious masters of the European musical tradition; in 1770, the young Mozart took the entrance exam for Bologna's Philharmonic Orchestra in the Conservatory. Museo Bibliografico Musicale contains some musical scripts signed by Rossini, and Donizetti such as the "Barber of Seville", and some rare musical prints from the 16th and 17th Centuries. Portraits of famous musicians are hung on the walls, these include two magnificent canvases by G. M. Crespi which depict a library which is painted so well that it actually seems real.
