Carrara Academy Gallery

Inspect works by Moroni and Botticelli and learn about Renaissance masters through the audio tour in this fine arts institution.

The Carrara Academy Gallery is an acclaimed fine arts museum in Bergamo. It is known for its vast collection of early Renaissance works of art, with pieces by Bellini and Moroni among the highlights. Look through more than 1,800 artworks on display in this impressive and comprehensive museum. 

Watch the brief animation that serves as an introductory film. Choose your favorites from among the many works of art on display. They date from the 15th through the 19th centuries. 

Follow the trails of themes to learn more about styles and trends. See the marvels by such masters as Pisanello, Raphael and Piccio. Study the haunting portraits by 16th-century master Giovanni Battista Moroni. The collection of portraits by Lorenzo Lotto and the works by Sandro Botticelli are equally inspiring. 

Go on a tour with an audio guide to learn about the various themes and artists showcased in the museum. It divulges fascinating information about individual paintings as well as their context, history and the artists themselves. Follow the trail to the themes of Women, Saints, Love and Fashion for a comprehensive understanding. See the religious paintings, including many variations of the famous Madonna with Child image.

Learn about the origins of the museum, which was set up using the works gathered by affluent collector and patron of the arts Count Giacomo Carrara. The museum is named after him.

The site opens Wednesday through Monday from morning until early evening, with earlier closing times in winter. Pay a fee to enter and get discounts for kids. Mondays have half-price admission.  

The Carrara Academy Gallery is in the eastern part of Bergamo. Ride a bus to one of the nearby stops and walk to the gallery. You can also park for free near the Piazzale Stadio on non-sport days. Visit other area highlights, such as the GAMeC modern art gallery, the Agliardi Palace and the Adriano Bernareggi Museum.
