ZonaVercelli

After the Galleria Sabauda in Turin, the next in importance is the Borgogna Museum of  Vercelli, one of the ten most important picture galleries in Italy. The 450 works currently on display, including paintings, furnishings and objets d'arte, all belong to the collection which Antonio Borgogna donated to the town in 1906, together with his neoclassical palace, which is home to the museum.

The group of Renaissance paintings from Piedmont and the Vercelli district, depositated by the Fine Arts Institute, is of considerable importance: about a hundred detached frescoes and altarpieces bear witness to the exceptional development. Most are works by Defedente Ferrari, Giovenone, Gaudenzio Ferrari and Lanino.

Extensive space is devoted to Renaissance paintings from Lombardy , Tuscany and Veneto , created by Titian, Luini, Francia and Sodoma, but there are also Flemish and Dutch works of art from the XVIIth century and Italian paintings from the period between the 19 th and 20 th centuries.
