When Milan became the capital of the the Kingdom of Italy the collection, by order of Napoleon was transformed into a museum that he intended to explain the most significant paintings from all the territories captured by the French army. Brera sounlike other major Italian museums like the Uffizi, for example, does not come from the private collection of the princes and aristocrats but from the political one and status.
A stupendous collection of fine art from Caravaggio to Bramante, often considered the finest art collections in Italy.
The Pinacoteca began life as a collection of paintings for students of the Accademia di Belle Arti in the same building; the paintings were harvested from churches and monasteries suppressed by the Napoleonic regime.
