Brera Art Gallery

The complex of Brera is a very interesting place: here you can visit the famous Pinacoteca, but it is not the only thing... Brera, in fact, is not only the Art Gallery, but also the Braidense Library, the astronomical Observatory, the Botanical garden. You enter in a elegant courtyard with a porch, from where you can reach the different spaces of Brera.

In the Astronomical Museum near the Observatory are guarded ancient instruments, papers, maps, telescopes.
The Botanical garden is a charming and evocative garden in the center of the city. In its 5000 mq various varieties of trees and flowers can be admired.

But the most famous part of the complex of Brera is sure the Pinacoteca: here there are valuable works of art. In the years the collection grew, even if, because of the bombings that hit Milan in 1943, the palace of Brera was damaged, some rooms were completely destroyed, but the Art Gallery was quickly reconstructed and it reopened in 1950.
Today it conserves a lot of paintings, that offer a complete vision of the artistic history of Lombardy, Italy and Europe, from the Renaissance to the 20th century. Among the most important artists we remember Sandro Botticelli, Carlo Carrà, Piero della Francesca, Amedeo Modigliani, Rembrandt, El Greco, Pieter Paul Rubens. The most famous paintings are Christ at the column by Bramante, Supper at Emmaus by Caravaggio, The Kiss by Francesco Hayez, the Lamentation over the Dead Christ by Andrea Mantegna and the Marriage of the Virgin by Raphael.
