Academia Carrarra Di Bella Arti Di , Bergamo Reviews
A really, really good regional gallery, recently restored. Established by local aristocrat Count Carrara in tbe 1800s this superb gallery contains Italian masterpieces from the Renaissance and baroque. Many of the big names are here - Botticelli, Titian, Bellini to name but a few. But there are also wonderful works by artists whose names are less familiar, such as Lorenzo Lotto and Giambattista Moroni. The museum reopened a few years ago in its beautiful home and is a pleasure to visit with excellent explanatory texts in English and Italian. Best of all? It's never crowded. You'll enjoy and get more out of this gallery that fighting the crowds in Florence, Rome or Venice's art museums.
Very interesting pieces. Extensive collection. I did use the audio tour and found it very informative.
A relatively small collection of excellently selected modern art in a beautifully appointed compact space. Every piece is a gem. This is in reference to their permanent collection for which admission is free. Absolutely nourishing for my spirit. I did not see their special exhibit space as it was closed at the time.
Very surprising museum - the exhibitions are not very rich, but very well designed, offering a strong aesthetic experience. Not small, but not huge either. The Raphael exhibition I’ve seen also featured 19th century and modern works, placing the artist in a wider context. The highlight of my Bergamo day trip.
Fantastic little gallery, would have loved to spend a bit longer and it was a shame the gift shop was closed when we were there. Wear a cardigan (/extra layer) as it's surprisingly cold in some parts!
