The galleria estense is housed in a series of newly restored rooms, wonderfully fit to the large canvases. The collection is of a very high quality, ranging from early christian paintings from the 14th century, to large and impressive baroque paintings. Too bad the air conditioning was not up to climatising the rooms properly during the heatwave that struck Modena... More

Beautiful collection in a renovated space that just reopened this May following being closed for three years due to earthquake damage. The museum is well worth a detour to Modena for art travelers as there are some real gems on exhibit here.

The Picture Gallery of the Estense family was one of the most beautiful in the world. Unfortunately, in 1744 the libertine Duke Francesco III decided to raise some money by selling the 100 most valuable paintings of the gallery. So you have to go to Dresden to see them. But there still are some wonderful paintings by Correggio, Guercino, Guido... More
