Museums & exhibitions
We cannot definitely prove that Italy is really the country with the most museums in the world. Nevertheless it is a fact that it has such a large selection of exhibition that amazes even connoisseurs.
Between the alpine north and the “boot tip” of Italy you can find museum dedicated to almost every topic – from A like Alfa Romeo to V like Vittoria.
The unbelievable variety is primarily due to the huge cultural heritage that documents every era of history and art in Italy. You will see unique, inestimable and world-famous works such as Michelangelo’s David, the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci or the ceiling frescoes by Buonarotti in the Sistine Chapel. The exhibition spaces of the country are full of finds and art treasures from primitive times till now – and goodness knows how many preciosities are still undetected.
Among the most popular museums in Italy rank the art gallery Brera in Milan, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Vatican Museum and the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome. In addition to permanent exhibitions in small and big locations, art galleries, palaces and churches Italy again and again comes up with exciting touring exhibitions and regular art fairs such as the renowned Biennale of Venice.
