A VISIT IN JUST ONE HOUR

60 minutes

For all Age

If you only have one hour to visit the Ambrosiana, we suggest you concentrate on the collection of Cardinal Federico Borromeo and the great masters, leaving the Galbiati Wing and the second floor for the next visit!

Visita

The Cartoon for the School of Athens by Raphael is in restoration and it will be visible on February, 2019. Sorry for the incovenience
In the first rooms, admire the Adoration of the Magi by Titian and the Holy Family with Saint Anne and the Infant Saint John by Luini, the Madonna of the Pavilion by Botticelli and the enigmatic Madonna of the Towers by Bramantino, followed by the Cartoon for the School of Athens by Raphael, newly restored and enhanced by a completely new display.

Le prime sale della Pinacoteca Ambrosiana

Continue with the Nativity by Barocci and the explosion of colours from Cardinal Borromeo’s collection of Flemish paintings. Here you will be fascinated by observing the countless details to be discovered in works by Paul Bril and Jan Brueghel the Elder.

I fiamminghi del Cardinale Borromeo

If you are attracted by curiosities, make a brief stop in Room 8 to admire the rare objects found in the display cases in the Room of the Medusa (Room 8), including the famous display case with a lock of Lucrezia Borgia’s hair.

Sala della Medusa

From here, you can take the large staircase to the ground floor, where you can admire Leonardo da Vinci’s Portrait of a Musician and the works of his school, the original drawings in the Codex Atlanticus and the Basket of Fruit by Caravaggio.

The other faces of the Ambrosiana

The most magical and ancient places of Milan: the ancient Forum where Constantine, St. Ambrose, St. Augustine and Theodosius walked, and the lower Church of Santo Sepolcro, built by the Crusaders… as well as a colossal statue of St. Charles Borromeo on Lake Maggiore; a Museum-Home at the Sacro Monte of Varese; a Foundation dedicated to the promotion of young artists: this is also the Ambrosiana!
