THE PALACE OF BRERA

written by Cedric Mills

Ostuni città bianca

The Palace has built on an ancient fourteenth-century convent of the order of the Humiliated, and subsequently passed to the Jesuits that established a school.

The actual Palace of the Brera’s Pinacoteca is of six hundred, and is a Francesco’s Maria Ricchini work, with Giuseppe’s Piermarini completions in the following century.
In the eight hundred the courtyard has been enriched with the statue in bronze of Napoleone I as reconciler Mars.
Subsequently the loggias, courtyards, halls and corridors were destined to the monuments that publicly celebrated artists, benefactors, men of culture and science, connected at the institution of Brera.
Today the best examples, as the two monuments at Cesare Beccaria of Pompeo Marchesi and Giuseppe Parini of Gaetano Monti, remain.

In the palace typically of the slow Baroque lombardos, have center, besides the Pinacoteca of Brera, different cultural institutions: the Library, the astronomic observatory, the Botanical garden, the Lombardo Institute of Sciences and Letters, and the Belle Arti Academy.
