The Pinacoteca Ambrosiana

The Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is a historic library in Milan, located in the heart of the city, in a building built on the remains of a Roman forum.
Over the centuries it has been subject to extensions, the last of which, ending in the 20s of last century, saw the annexation of the rooms of the monastery of the Oblates near the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Named after the patron saint of the city of Milan, Ambrose, and founded in 1607 by Cardinal Federico Borromeo. In 1618, Cardinal Borromeo gave the library his collection of paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings and engravings, giving life to the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, born in order to serve as a model of a future Academy of Fine Arts. Over the years the large art collection has grown thanks to the many private donations. Among the most important of these is the “School of Athens” cartoon by Raphael, the “Basket of Fruit” by Caravaggio, the “Adoration of the Magi” by Titian, and many others including paintings by Leonardo, Botticelli, Bramantino Bergognone, Bernardino Luini, Jacopo Bassano, Moretto, Moray, Daniele Crespi, Andrea Appiani, Francesco Hayez. Interesting from a historical point of view is the production of copies of famous paintings, sponsored by Federico Borromeo for educational and documentary purposes, such as the replica of the Last Supper by Leonardo, that in the seventeenth century, in the refectory of the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie , was in a very poor conditions.
