Museum of Sant'Eustorgio

Piazza Sant'Eustorgio, 3. (Open Map)


Soft lighting and silent. A perfect environment for the sacredness of the museum adjacent to the Basilica di Sant’Eustorgio, one of the most important works of Lombardy Gothic. The museum houses a small repertory of 57 works that trace the history of the sacred from the Old to the New Testament. While the repertory is small in terms of numbers, its value is inestimable because of the rarity of these works, fruit of the hands of Renaissance painters like Lanzani, Vermiglio and Chignoli. The works inspired by Caravaggio are wrapped in mystery and anonymity.
Lombardy Gothic is a historical art phenomenon that was closely linked to the courts, and was promoted by frequent exchanges of artworks and artists themselves between the centers of northern Italy. 
The Collezione Marone [Marone Collection] is quite remarkable – it was donated in 1663 and consists of Lombardy art paintings from the Renaissance on. Be sure not to miss the Cappella Pontinari, a work by Vincenzo Foppa inside the Basilica di Sant'Eustorgio that represents one of the greatest masterpieces of the Lombardy Renaissance.
