Join art historian Laura Benitti to go beyond The Last Supper to explore the vast array of enchanting masterpieces in museum collections around Milan.  Together we will view the most famous art and sculpture in the city, including works by Raphael, Caravaggio, Piero della Francesca, and Michelangelo.
Milan is the capital of finance, industry, and fashion in Italy.  It is also a sophisticated cultural hub, full of important galleries, museums, and collections.  The Fine Arts Museum, the Sforza Castle, and the Brera Art Gallery display world-class masterpieces by the finest names in art history.  Yet, these museums are often overlooked by visitors hoping to see the city highlights quickly.  With the help of a local art historian, we will get up close with these collections and explore the best of the Milan art museum scene.
Led by an expert on art history, Laura Benitti, this interactive seminar will explore the great masterpieces in Milan’s finest museums. Designed to inform curiosity and future travels, participants will come away with increased knowledge about visiting the best art museums in Milan and how to find some hidden gems.

Laura was born in Turin, where she studied history of art, but moved to Milan in 2002. Since her graduation, she has accumulated a long experience as an art consultant and registrar in a few museums in Turin, as well as expertise as a local Milan guide. She loves to be both an experienced and friendly local ambassador of Milan and Como area for her travelers.

Wonderful Milan Museums

I have visited all the museums spotlighted in this presentation and it was a very happy 90 minutes of pleasing memories. These museums have so much to offer and I was delighted to see the paintings again and to continue to learn more about them.

Nice in depth tour of Milan museums

I haven't been to Milan yet, but I took this seminar to prepare to go. I learned of three museums I hadn't planned on visiting, so now I have to extend my stay in Milan! Laura does a nice job with the highlights of the museums and their history.

Beautiful Museums and Their Masterpieces

Exceptional Intro to Milan's masterpieces

This was an outstanding seminar. For those who have never been to Milan (I missed my 1st trip there in Sept) and/or are art lovers, it was glorious to delve into the masterpieces in the various museums. I had not heard of two places that now I must go to! I loved hearing about the symbols in the paintings, and having a true art historian guide me in a new way to look at a painting just a little more carefully. Laura was so clearly in her element, and she was so gracious in sharing her expertise and knowledge. More seminars like this with Laura please! :)
