Museo Poldi-Pezzoli

The Museo Poldi-Pezzoli contains a spectacular private collection that was bequeathed by its namesake Poldi Pezzoli to the city in 1879. Numerous masterpieces hang from the walls of the Golden Room, with its vista onto a picturesque garden. Antonio Pollaiolo's Portrait of a Lady,depicting the profile of an elegant woman, has become nothing less than a symbol for Milan's own style and elegance. Other famous paintings include Virgin and Childby Andrea Mantegna, Bellini's Ecce Homo, Piero della Francesca's St Nicholasand Guardi's Grey Lagoon.
