When Milan became the capital of the Italian Kingdom, the collection, by the will of Napoleon, was transformed into a museum that intended to exhibit the most significant paintings from all the territories conquered by the French armies. Brera therefore, unlike other great Italian museums, such as the Uffizi for example, does not arise from the private collection of princes and aristocracy but from the political and state one.
A wonderful collection of works of art from Caravaggio to Bramante, often considered the most beautiful art collection in Italy.
The Pinacoteca began life as a collection of paintings for students of the Academy of Fine Arts in the same building; the paintings were collected from churches and convents suppressed by the Napoleonic regime.
It includes works by major Italian artists from the 13th to the 20th century, inside the Pinacoteca we find important works of art, including the dead Christ by Andrea Mantegna, a sad Pietà by Giovanni Bellini, the Virgin and Child with Saints by Piero della Francesca, Donato Bramante's Christ at the Column, and Caravaggio's Supper Emmaus, but also works by Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese.
