The Bottacin Museum is located on the second floor of the Zuckermann Palace, which was generously donated to the municipality by Nicola Bottacin, a trader from Trieste. He was eager to have a museum that bore his name; therefore between 1865 and 1870 he donated to the municipality of Padua his rich collection of works of art (paintings, furniture, sculptures and manuscripts) and of ancient and modern coins (more than 100,000). Approximately two thirds of the items displayed stem from following bequests and purchases, which made this museum an essential point of reference for the experts of numismatics all over Europe.
