The Brera Pinacoteka is open to the public in 1803. Among other similar objects, they are distinguished by an impressive collection of Italian painting, in which paintings can be found, among others Rafael, Caravaggio and Canaletta.

The museum is located in a building whose history dates back to the first half of the 13th century and is associated with the semi-secular order of humiliats. After the liquidation of this congregation, the building, in accordance with the wishes of Pope Pius V, passed into the hands of the Jesuits. They ran a school and a college in it. In the reconstruction of the building he helped, among others Italian architect Ggiuseppe Permarini. The museum owes its creation to the patronage of the state. The museum building suffered during World War II, however, the collections survived and in 1950 the Pinacotheque resumed its activity.
