Arts & Museums
For every avid fan of Gaetano Donizetti, a visit to the Donizetti Museum is a must. This tiny treasure house stores a plethora of personal memorabilia of this celebrated opera composer. A stroll through the museum will let you have a glimpse of the musician's music sheets, notation books and his piano as well. You also get to see the deathbed where Donizetti breathed his last. Call for further details.
The Pinacoteca gallery, located within the Palazzo dell'Accademia, was founded in 1795 by Count Giacomo Carrara, a merchant collector, who at his death bequeathed his collection to the city of Bergamo. This collection has grown thanks to more acquisitions and private donations. Today the Pinacoteca holds around 1800 works from the fifteenth to the nineteenth centuries, originating from the Lombard and venetian schools of painting, as well as from Tuscan and Flemish artists. In addition to this collection there is also a large series of prints, bronzes, sculptures, porcelain and furniture. There are rooms dedicated to the Lombard painters, like the seventeenth century painter G.B. Moroni or Lorenzo Lotto. There are also gallery rooms dedicated to the fifteenth century Florentine painters, such as Botticelli, Signorelli, Donatello, Beato Angelico. You can also find examples of Venetian art. The Gallery of Modern Art, next to the Accademia Carrara, has a further collection of prestigious modern works and temporary exhibitions. Check website for more details.
