Pinacoteca di Bologna: an art paradise

Jan 28th, 2017

Pinacoteca di Bologna is located close to Le Due Torri, inside the former Noviziato Gesuita di Sant’Ignazio, a magnificent place built in the second half of the 15th century in order to welcome young people who wanted to take part of the Society of Jesus. In 1762, Monsignor Francesco Zambeccari donated some of its 16th century paintings to the Accademia Clementina, originating from the prestigious Accademia dei Desiderosi, created by the Carracci family in 1582, thus giving birth to the collection. Pinacoteca was totally renovated in 1997 and at present it hosts, apart from 30 exhibition rooms, the Sale della Belle Arti and very modern rooms on the basement. You can admire paintings by Giotto, Raffaello, Parmigianino, Perugino, Tiziano and Tintoretto. We felt in love with the details of the italian paintings. Enjoy a selection and feel free to get inspired.
