This museum was closed during our visit in mid April last year...a big disappointment. Hopefully it is open now.

This museum has fabulous icon artwork. It is very lovely and quiet with space to enjoy the various pieces, some centuries old. Well worth the trip.

I cannot say enough about the Pinacoteca! I cannot recommend this gallery too highly! First, I cannot believe that there were so few people in the museum. I'm guessing that in addition to my family group of six, maybe another half a dozen people were in the entire building. Not everyone is an art historian or has studied art history. That said, the sheer volume of works presented and the quality of the presentation allows for one to walk through the progression of (religious) art from about 1200-1500 AD. I loved that the works were presented in various states and think that is so important for great institutions such as this for educational purposes. What I mean by this is that on some of the altarpieces and works the places for the gemstones are left empty where the originals were removed, or altarpieces that were cropped for translation to other locations are presented as they currently are. Why a work was made and how it has moved through history says so much about a society and the importance of both religion and artwork. Once can also follow stylistic changes from more Byzantine styles to the burgeoning of perspectival studies and into the perfectly finished realism so associated with the (northern) Renaissance.

I was there around noon (12 o’clock). I was alone in most rooms, i guess there were maybe four or five visitors at all. Im a big fan of italian proto- Renaissance , so i was the happiest person visiting this place. Duccio, Sano di pietro, Sassetta, Giovanni di Paolo, etc. highly recommend for all who is fond of pre renaissance! The lightning in some rooms doesn’t permit you to take good quality pictures on phone.
