The primary open-air art gallery in Milan, Italy, is Pinacoteca di Brera (Brera Art Gallery). It is a part of the Brera Academy's cultural program that has one of the most important collections of Italian paintings from the thirteenth to the twentieth centuries. This art gallery is based in the posh locality of Milan, Palazzo Brera.

The lavish Italian paintings in Pinacoteca Di Brera are full of subtle religious and cultural depth, and they greet you in an atmosphere that is both grand and unpretentious. The ornate baroque design of the building's interiors is a major draw. More than four hundred pieces of art are on display.

The Braidense National Library and the astronomical Observatory continued to be housed on this site until 1773. The new botanical garden's herbarium was added in 1774.
