The picture gallery Zambeccari, which was originally set up in the old palace called of St. Paul, was enriched during the 18th century thanks to the marquesses Camillo (1656-1731) and Francesco (1682-1767), and it’s now one of the most important collections of Bologna. The first seat of the picture gallery was rebuilt on the will of the marquess Giacomo Zambeccari (1723-1795) by the architect Carlo Bianconi, and it’s now the seat of the Banca Popolare di Milano and the present-day seat of the picture gallery. The collection is distributed in 9 rooms and 1 salon; here there are works of the masters of the emiliana school such as Lodovico Carracci, Guercino, Albani, Crespi, Passerotti, Tiarini, Mastelletta, Franceschini, Pasinelli and Creti. Moreover there are testimonies of pictorial school of Genoa, Florence, Veneto and Neaple, besides Flemish and Byzantine schools.
