An exciting collection of Renaissance works and an interesting arrangement of rooms, atmosphere and decor. Don't miss it!
Come here when you feel like submerging yourself in another era. The important works exhibited here must be seen with nineteenth century eyes. A few steps north of the Duomo, on Via Gerolamo Morone, you will come across the former residence of aristocrat, Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli. When de died in 1879, he bequeathed his vast art collection to the Brera Academy. Today, this is one of the city's most interesting museums. The primary reason is the arrangement of its rooms. This visit has such special appeal as the original décor of the residence and the ambience in each room work in harmony with what is one display. Also, as well as works of the Italian Renaissance, there are rooms such as the Armoury, tapestry displays, clocks and porcelain. The museum therefore goes beyond art, revealing an insight into different eras in Italy.
