Tourist Attraction in Cagliari: Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Cagliari
The National Art Gallery of Cagliari, located within the museum complex of the Citadel of the Museums, is located in Arsenale 1 square in Cagliari and exhibits various collections derived from both private donations and state acquisitions. In the halls of the Pinacoteca are painted by Sardinian artists from the sixteenth to the twentieth century, paintings of the XV-XVIII centuries of Genoese, Neapolitan and Roman schools and a collection of Sardinian and Catalan retablaes of the 400s and 500s. The museum also has a collection ethnographic and craftsmanship, which is exposed to rotation. The exhibition space of the pinacoteca was born within the perimeter of the former military arsenal after being hosted from the end of the nineteenth century in the palace of the Seziate and closed to the public for more than a century. The exhibition has been set up since 1992 within the Citadel of the Museums complex. The first nucleus of the collection was formed after 1866 following the laws of suppression of ecclesiastical bodies, which brought many paintings into the patrimony of the State and the destruction of the church of San Francesco di Stampace in 1875. The ethnographic collection formed at the beginning of the twentieth century. The building spans three levels around the ancient Spanish walls. Upper floor Juan Matès: Retaining of the Annunciation, Juan Barcelo: Retablo of Visitation, Pietro Cavaro: DepositionSant'Agostino San Pietro San Paolo San Agostino in Chair, Michele Cavaro: Triptych of Consolation, Retablo di Bonaria, Retablo of Our Lady of the Snow. The retablo (from the Latin retro tabula, ie "behind the altar canteen") is a large altarpiece made up of numerous painted tables with sacred subjects, assembled within a large architectural structure of golden wood. On the middle floor are paintings of the XVII-XVIII century, with works of mostly extraterrestrial artists such as Domenico Fiasella (San Gerolamo, Rebecca at the source). Lower floor, Escape to Egypt (last quarter of the 16th century). Madonna with Child (16th century). There are also works by Sardinian authors from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries representing themes of rural life, landscapes and portraits of local characters. The ethnographic collection (which for space reasons is exposed to rotation) can be dated between the late 1800s and early 1900s and includes: fabrics and embroidery, furniture (chests, baskets, baskets, caskets), jewelery in gold and silver 19th century, 14th-18th century and 15th and 17th century Arabic-style Arabic ceramics, 18th and 19th century fire and white firearms, including archibugs, sabers, daggers, knives and bayonets, a 12th-century Islamic bronze medal century, similar to the other specimen preserved at the Louvre Museum, rosaries, buttons, amulets and spuligadentes, aristocratic coat-of-arms.
