The Pinacoteca

The collection of the Pinacoteca proposes an itinerary that focuses on Lombard painting from the mid 15th century to the beginnings of neoclassicism. One can find two significant groupings of paintings from the Veneto area and a small but choice series of 17th century Dutch and Flemish paintings. Within the gallery itinerary, sculpted wooden reliefs, terracotta busts and a collection of medals (Civico Gabinetto Numismatico e Medagliere) come together to suggest the poetry of art expressed through various typologies and materials. The Pinacoteca includes large altar pieces, devotional paintings, polyptych and miniatures painted by Lombard masters, often innovators of painting techniques and of a personal interpretation of religious and profane themes. Some names of international fame punctuate the itinerary as do paintings of fundamental importance for art history: the Madonna Enthroned between Saints initialled by Andrea Mantegna in 1497, Bronzino's Portrait of Lorenzo Lenzi circa 1525 and also works by Correggio, Tiziano and Tintoretto portraying the physiognomy of famous personalities. The Art Gallery includes entire painted and frescoed mural cycles salvaged from religious buildings and private palazzi, either destroyed during the war or demolished.
