Fodor's Review

This gallery was opened in 2002 by Gianni Agnelli (1921–2003), the head of FIAT and patriarch of one of Italy's most powerful families, just four months before his death. The emphasis here is on quality rather than quantity: 25 works of art from the Agnelli private collection are on permanent display, along with temporary exhibitions. There are four magnificent scenes of Venice by Canaletto (1697–1768); two splendid views of Dresden by Canaletto's nephew, Bernardo Bellotto (1720–80); several works by Manet (1832–83), Renoir (1841–1919), Matisse (1869–1954), and Picasso (1881–1973); and fine examples of the work of Italian futurist painters Balla (1871–1958) and Severini (1883–1966). The gallery is on the top floor of the Lingotto, a former FIAT factory that was completely transformed between 1982 and 2002 by architect Renzo Piano. The multilevel complex now holds a shopping mall, several movie theaters, restaurants, two hotels, and an auditorium. Don't miss the beautifully preserved spiral ramps that once took cars up and down the original building.

Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli Review

This is a gem, and a perfect Fodors Choice. A very little museum, 4 rooms actually, less than 25 paintings. But exquisite (Canaletto, Renoir, Manet , modigliano) And the most beautiful painting of Dresden in 1775. In a stunning setting of a renovated automobile factory. TO DO!
