Venceslao Lazzari's memorial fresco

The memorial of Venceslao Lazzari was painted in 1601 by Lionello Spada. Nowadays part of the memorial is almost unreadable due to the bad preservation along the years.

It is located inside the "Palazzo dell'Archiginnasio", the first unified seat of the University of Bologna near the "Scalone degli artisti" that connects the courtyard to the university.
