Database

The various sections of the database provide information supplementary to those given in the picture commentaries, guided tours, and biographies.

  • The Fine Arts Museums and the Churches sections introduce the major museums and some of the great churches owning the original artworks the reproductions of which are presented in the Gallery.
  • The Glossary section contains, in fact, five independent glossaries focusing respectively on art terms and historic events, art centres of the Italian Renaissance, famous families of the Italian Renaissance, illustrious people related to the Renaissance, and popes in the 12th-18th centuries.
  • The Statistics section presents some statistical data on the collection of the Gallery, the breakdown of the images by form, time-frame, school, and subjects.

In addition, the database contains all data of the exhibited reproductions in the Gallery in MS Excel, MS Access, and delimited text formats. You can download the catalogue for studying or searching off-line.
