The Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna was originally the Portrait gallery for the city's College for Fine Arts. It was only in 1882 that it became a museum in its own right. It was opened to the public in 1885. The gallery is divided into sections and has a valuable collection of paintings from different periods between the 14th and 18th Centuries. There are many famous names of artists amongst the list of paintings. Some of the following are particularly famous: the fourteenth century polytych by Giotto, the late Gothic paintings by Lippo di Dalmasio and Jacopo di Paolo, as well as some masterpieces by Raffaello, Parmigianino, Franceso Cossa and Lorenzo Costa to show the Renaissance styles. The Mannerists are represented by Prospero Fontana and Bartolomeo Passarotti. There is also work by Guercino, Lorenzo Sabbatini, Denjis Calvaert and Guido Reni. Much of the museum has been given over to work by Carraccio and to the prestigious Art school which he founded. There is also an entire room which houses a collection of paintings by Crespi.
