In this 16th-century building (Palazzo Poggi), in the heart of the oldest university in Europe, the University Museums run by the C.I.S.M.A. (Interdepartmental Center for Museum and Archive Services) can be found. These museums include the Museum dedicated to the history of the Bolognese Studio which, located near the Rectorate, was inaugurated in 1888, the year of the celebration of the Eighth Centenary since the founding of the University. As well as the documents which attest the history of the University, the Museum also holds the 16th century rectoral insignia, the robes of some famous scholars, the portraits of rectors, and the cerimonial banners. The Museum is closed to the public at the moment as it is undergoing renovation.
