The Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is a museum in Milan (Italy).
It was founded by Federico Borromeo in 1618 at the Ambrosiana Library, instituted as early as 1609. The institution was born to ensure a free cultural training to anyone who had artistic or intellectual qualities. The Pinacoteca was joined by an academy of painting and sculpture, with plaster copies of Laocoonte and Pieta by Michelangelo from the Leone Leoni collection. The first painting teacher was the Cerano; only student of some importance was Daniele Crespi.
The Ambrosiana Library and the Pinacoteca are closely related. In fact, the first has kept a series of paintings with sages of classical Antiquity and Christian culture and contained inside drawings and minded codices: in 1637, Leonardo's manuscripts were donated by Galeazzo Arconati today at the Institute of France ( today, after the looting of Napoleon, only the so-called Atlantic Codex remains in place). Another treasure of the Library is the manuscript with the work of Virgil who belonged to Petrarca (who glossed it) with a miniature of Simone Martini.
In the Pinacoteca you can find today works, from the collections of Federico Borromeo (in the four corridors that surround the reading room of the Ambrosiana Library) and numerous successive legacies, among which there are paintings by Leonardo da Vinci ( Portrait of a musician), Botticelli, Bramantino, Ambrogio Bergognone, Bernardino Luini, Tiziano, Jacopo Bassano, Moretto, Savoldo, Giovanni Paolo Lomazzo, Caravaggio (Fruit Basket), Jan Brueghel the Elder, Cerano, Morazzone, Daniele Crespi, Anton Raphael Mengs, Andrea Appiani.
Interesting from the historical point of view is the production of copies of famous paintings, promoted by Federico Borromeo for educational and documentary purposes, such as the replica of Leonardo's Last Supper, which was already in precarious conditions in the 17th century.
One of the most precious treasures that is conserved is the cardboard of the famous mural The School of Athens of Rafael. It measures almost eight meters long and is, in fact, the largest cardboard that remains of the Italian Renaissance.

The Ambrosiana Library is a historical library in Milan, which also contains the art gallery known as Pinacoteca Ambrosiana.
The library, which owes its name to Ambrose, the patron saint of Milan, was founded in 1607 by Cardinal Federico Borromeo, whose agents toured Western Europe and even Greece and Syria in search of books and manuscripts. Some important acquisitions of complete libraries were the manuscripts of the Benedictine monastery of Bobbio (1606), as well as those of the Paduano Vincenzo Pinelli library, whose more than 800 manuscripts filled 70 boxes when they were sent to Milan, and included the famous Illuminated Iliad, Ilia Picta.
