Museo Civico Ala Ponzone reviews
Definitely worth a visit here. They have a Caravaggio which is what took me there. But there are other beautiful pieces in a well presented gallery. They also have temporary exhibitions. more »
This 16th century palace is worth a visit for the architecture alone but it contains centuries of truly fine Art and Antiques. Entrance is 7 euros but was included with the Lombardy Museum Pass. The..... more »
The museum is in a beautiful big villa wie in the middle of the city centre. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The entrance fee of 7€is okay, I guess. The exhibition, well, there are no english descriptions for the pictures or pieces. You have to download an app for a fully guidance of the museum in different languages. They advertise with Arcimboldo, a famous Italian painter. They One picture of him. O N E !!! The guitar exhibition is interesting but I don't like seeing 20 pieces one after another just because they look slightly different. Of course, they are amazingly built from very ancient times... No paintings from this time work the guitars on it or how they have been played or how they have been built... No story behind it. Yes, a little bit in Italian....but very nice rooms of the villa. The Japanese porcelain exhibition is quite a sight worth. People who are interested in clerical, ecclesiastical art will be happy to find a lot in there.
Excellent collection of Italian artist paintings from the renaissance. There's no more violin collection btw as some said in previous reviews.
