In the spirit of their motto "Zelo zelatus sum pro Domino Deo exercituum" the Carmelite Friars of the Basilica of San Martino Maggiore are pleased to invite you to the visits planned for the Basilica and the Convent, with the exception of the large fresco (104 m2) by Massari and Curti (1626-9), which is located in the room of the former library and represents the first lesson of Theology at the Studium of Bologna which, according to the Carmelite Fathers, represents Saint Pier Thomas, Carmelite Martyr, founder of the College of Sacred Theology in Bologna (1362).
In 2019 the roof of the Convent was restored and in 2020 the restoration of the fresco was carried out thanks to funding from MIBACT (Emilia-Romagna). Currently, the restoration works for the arrangement of the hall and the creation of inclusive accessibility have been restarted, works which currently prevent visits.
