Pinacoteca di Brera

I finally got the chance to visit the Pinacoteca Brera in Milano.
The Pinoteca di Brera website (also virtual gallery in there): http://www.brera.beniculturali.it/
I´ve waited the possibility to go through this entrance for a long time...
For me the highlight of the visit was to see the amazing paintings of Francesco Hayez.
Especially to see the "Il Bacio" in real life. More info about the painting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Kiss_Hayez
And the "Odalisca" from Hayez too.
But this room became my favourite for other reasons too.
Because the same room had also other treasures: the beautiful landscape painting called "Paesaggio lagunare" from Guglielmo Ciardi and from Girolamo Induno the painting called "Triste Presentimento". And also paintings from Giovanni Fattori.
Below is photo of very effective work from Pellizza da Volpedo (Giuseppe Pellizza) called " Human flood".
