This museum defies conventions by interweaving artistic periods. The result is equal to the quality and renown of the works, which make up a staggering total of over 38 000 masterpieces. Cast aside any thought of chronological landmarks and enjoy a fresh perspective. Here, screens are displayed side by side with Roman mosaics and a lithograph by Roy Lichtenstein juxtaposes Giuliano Bugiardini's Virgin and Child (1530). A fascinating visit that confounds expectations.
