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.
