A treasure hunt in Lombardy

Ten masterpieces for an outing in Lombardy away from the usual routes. Choose with us where to start your Treasure Hunt!

From the extraordinary frescoes by Romanino at Pisogne, on Lake Iseo, to the Rotonda di San Tomé in Almenno San Bartolomeo, in the province of Bergamo. To guide us on this journey through beauty we have a young scholar in the history of art, Jacopo Veneziani, a PhD student at the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne in Paris.

In the coming months, Jacopo will also accompany us on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter profiles with a suggestion a day. And an invitation to participate actively in our treasure hunt by sharing your images on Instagram of monuments, villas, museums, churches, frescoes... scattered throughout the region. Here is the hashtag #TesoriinLombardia #inLombardia.
