Very beautiful picture gallery, fascinating the lighting used in some rooms that allows you to enhance the colors of the works, they seemed almost backlit! The part dedicated to Leonardo's Codex Atlanticus was a little disappointing compared to expectations, although it remains an incredible collection, I did not find the exhibition up to the level of the rest of the art gallery.

Absolutely to visit, the new lighting of the paintings on the first floor is literally SPECTACULAR, they seem to be backlit. Forms, colors, details like I had never seen before. Only this is worth the ticket price. It is a pity that the whole show is not so well lit but I trust that they will do it in a short time even in all the other art galleries in Italy.

The visit was pleasant, well accompanied by the audio guide, with an adequate temperature in the salons. In some rooms I found some improvements compared to my last visit: the led lights on the paintings, the penumbra in the rooms, the digital insights very well done. We did a little more effort with the paper folding to match the number of rooms (perhaps it would be better to put an actual correspondence between the tablet and the room clearly when entering). The part of Leonardo in the show was not very large and compared to the expectations of the advertising of the event he was a little disappointed. However: the arrangement of the restored correspondence of the School of Athens and the many well-classified and exhibited paintings are very beautiful. I found new and particular that of the Flemish authors, and the final work of the Musico attributed to Leonardo (inside the reading room) at the end of the journey.
