“Very enjoyable on Sunday morning”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We really liked this place! After having seen several so many of the high-powered art collections in Florence and Milan, it was a pleasure to see a smaller collection of very fine so-called "lesser" art works which weren't meant to knock your socks off. One of the best surprises was their small collection of Renaissance portraits, including one of Christopher Columbus as well as another of Dante Alighieri. One memorable portrait from another era was that of a lady who was wearing the absolutely strangest hairdo imaginable! [Obviously it pleased her husband, whose portrait was right next to hers!] We recommend going there on a Sunday morning when there's not a lot to do. Be aware that they shut down that day at 1:00pm. Worth the trip for sure.

“Enjoyable way to spend a morning”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

A big range of work here starting with carved masonry, through some ancient frescoes, the usual Renaissance paintings and into modern artworks. There was also a very interesting exhibition and short film presentation (which we were able to watch in English) about the forward-thinking, Como-born architect Antonio Sant'Elia who, sadly, was killed in WW2 before many of his futurist style projects could be realised.
