This neoclasical edification, built by Pico della Mirandola was converted into an awesome museum by Spanish architect Rafael Moneo. Its rich collection of paintings, from the Romanesque period until the late Twentieth Century, with emphasis on biggest collection in the world of German Expressionists, was initiated and expanded in the first decades of the 20th century by German noble family Thyssen.
