Description

Guided walking tour to the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan, one of the most famous and important Italian museums for its prestigious collections of ancient and modern painting. The gallery is mainly a large gallery of ancient paintings but it also retains a select group of works of art of 19th Century and of modern and classical art, especially Italian. The Pinacoteca di Brera is located in the great palace of Brera, which also houses other institutions including the National Library Braidense, the Accademy of Fines Arts and the
Astronomical Observatory. The Art Gallery occupies the top floor of the large building, but is waiting to expand in nearby Palazzo Citterio. The fame of the Pinacoteca is due to large canvases by Lombardy, Veneto and Emilia Romagna schools. Stand out in particular the famous masterpieces by Piero della Francesca, Giovanni Bellini, Mantegna, Raphael, Tintoretto and Caravaggio. The collection of 19th Century paintings is limited but includes important works of Hayez, Fattori, Lega, Segantini, Pellizza from Volpedo and Medardo Rosso. The collection of modern art includes splendid works of the first'900 artists. Modigliani, Boccioni, Carrà, Severini, Morandi, Sironi and Philip de Pisis stand out with some of their greatest masterpieces. The area surrounding the Pinacoteca di Brera with the magnificent Church of San Marco (short visit inside at the beginning of the tour) is one of the oldest areas of town, today one of the most distinctive and fascinating. There are many art galleries and historic bar with outdoor tables, once "literary cafe" frequented by artists and students of the Academy.
