Staffed mainly by volunteers who seemed as confused as we were about where we should go and what to see. The wooden theatre is interesting but the gallery, as such, is nowhere near the quality of most major Italian galleries.

The gallery is fairly small. Mostly religious paintings. Definite highlight is Leonardo's Head of a Young Woman. Also they have The Turkish Slave by Parmigianino which is displayed on the entry ticket and The Beach by Renato Guttuso which looks entirely out of place with...More

A range of paintings through the centuries. Rather weighted to religious "madonna e bambino" type but a range of other styles as well, something to please all art lovers. I'm not talking about modern, surrealist, etc, but "standard" landscape and portrait art.

There are some wonderful paintings in this gallery, if you can find them. Unfortunately a large part of the collection is hung in the former barns of the Palazzo della Pilotta, and you have to be sure of turning up at the right time in...More
