Accademia Carrara, Gabinetto Disegni e Stampe


The Accademia Carrara owns 7,500 prints, many of which collected into volumes. Among others are prints of Andrea Mantegna, Albrecht Dürer, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, and Canaletto. The

drawings are in total 2,824, many of which never been studied. For the most part, they were gathered by Count Giacomo Carrara (1714-1796). However, there is also an additional corpus of works which includes architectural sheets by Jacopo Quarenghi and his school, drawings by Il Piccio and, more generally, works by the Bergamasque nineteenth-century school. The 777 graphic works by the students of the Art School of Bergamo, dated between the early eighteenth century and the second half of the twentieth century, have also never been object of study.
