We loved the small (compared to many) art museum. Many hidden delights, and tucked away on the second floor (I think) was a delightful Leonardo da Vinci painting of a young woman's face. There was no one there. The painting is fabulous and we could...More

The palazzo houses also a gallery with medieval paintings, most of which are copies. Not being a great fan of medieval art, I did not find it very exciting. The key thing in the Palazzo is the theatre.

Although small, this city art gallery has some extraordinary works in its collection. The two Cima di Conegliano paintings and the Leonardo sketch are worth the entrance price on their own.

The gallery is part of the Palazzo della Pilotta, which also contains the Farnese theatre. There are a lot of interesting works here but the outstanding one is a small portrait of a girl "La Scapigliata" by Leonardo da Vinci. Sublime

The Galleria Nazionale in Parma houses some great works of art in a dilapidated building, including paintings by Correggio and Parmigianino, and a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci. They are mostly religious medieval and renaissance paintings. These masterpieces would definitely deserve better management and at...More

a NICELY laid out museum for easy viewing of their collection. The font on signs could be a bit bigger but otherwise is was a great walk through to see history and appreciate where we were and were we are today !!

Staffed mainly by volunteers who seemed as confused as we were about where we should go and what to see. The wooden theatre is interesting but the gallery, as such, is nowhere near the quality of most major Italian galleries.
