Bergamo is home to an art collection that's surprisingly rewarding given its size and remote location. Many of the Venetian masters are represented—Mantegna, Bellini, Carpaccio (circa 1460–1525/26), Tiepolo (1727–1804), Francesco Guardi (1712–93), Canaletto (1697–1768)—as well as Botticelli (1445–1510). The museum is undergoing remodeling through at least the end of 2014, but a selection of works can be seen at Palazzo della Regione in Piazza Vecchia, Bergamo Alta.
