Pinacoteca Ambrosiana

The Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is a historic library and art gallery in Milan. This massive building is a part of the Biblioteca Ambrosiana, one of the most important libraries in the country. Both of the establishments are named after Ambrose, the saint of Milan, and have housed important manuscripts and paintings for several centuries. Federico Borromeo founded the Pinacoteca in 1621, and its original purpose was to be the central academy of painting and sculpture. However, the monumental building suffered great damage during the two World Wars, and only managed to be restored to its former glory in 1966.

  • Study the beautiful works of art at Milan’s Pinacoteca Amrosiana made by DaVinci, Botticelli, Tiziano, Caravaggio, Crespi and many other famous artists of the era.
  • Have a look at the Codex Atlanticus, an exhibition project put together by the most prominent art historians, which allows you to read the notes of Leonardo DaVinci; these notes date all the way back to the XV-XVI century.
  • Take a stroll in the atrium of this Milan gallery and observe all the striking sculptures, as well as the unique architectural style of this magnificent palace.

The Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is in the centre of Milan, on Piazza Pio XI, 2. If you take Metro lines MM1 and MM3, get off at the Duomo Station. This will take you out onto the central square of the city, and from there, you will only have to walk for a couple of minutes. Most bus lines will also take you to the central square where the gallery is situated, so you should be able to find it without difficulty. Keep in mind that the gallery is closed on Mondays, but is open on all other days, including weekends.
