Description

Collection

The collection of the National Gallery is the largest and most complete in the region. The exhibits date from the thirteenth to the nineteenth century. The original core of the collection was given to the Accadamia del Disegno di Perugia for didactic purposes.

The exhibition includes numerous works of art from private collections and with religious background.

Historical Information

Accommodation in Palazzo dei Priori

In 1878 the collection of the Umbrian National Gallery was housed on the upper floor of the Palazzo dei Priori, one of the most interesting examples of Gothic-style bourgeois buildings in Italy.

Renaming

In 1863 the collection was declared a Pinacoteca Civica. In 1918 it was given the name Regia Calleria Vannucci because of its great national importance, later it was renamed Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria.
