History, art and culture at Palazzo Brera and Art Gallery

Your weekend in Milan must absolutely include a visit to one of the several local attractions.  If you are art enthusiasts especially attracted to painting you just cannot miss Brera Art Gallery.

A little history

Palazzo Brera once belonged to the Jesuits, who run a school on the premises.  Following their dissolution in 1773, Emperess Marie-Therese of Austria decided the building would become the home to a number of institutions meant to greatly enhance Milan's splendour and cultural standards.
It was the dawn of the Accademia di Belle Arti  school of fine arts (with annexed Art Gallery ), of the Lombard Institute of Science and Literature, of the National  Braidense Library, of the Astronomical Observatory and of the Botanical Garden.

Top works of art

When it was first created, Brera Art Gallery mainly served the purpose of educational showcase for displaying the outstanding masterpieces produced in the adjoining   Accademia di Belle Arti school of fine arts. Legacies, donations and the requisitions during the reign of Empress Marie-Therese and in Napoleon’s days contributed to greatly expand the collection, which acquired celebrated works of art such as:

  • Ambrogio Lorenzetti, Madonna and child
  • Giovanni Bellini, Pietà
  • Andrea Mantegna, The Lamentation over the Dead Christ
  • Caravaggio, Supper at Emmaus
  • Francesco Hayez, The kiss
  • Francesco Hayez, Portrait of Alessandro Manzoni
