Called Leoni Montarni GAllery, it is encompassing Russian iconoclasts and Vicenza frescoes. The BAnco Intesa began assembling the collection in mid 1990's and have a great display of Russian religious paintings, Vicenza fresoces by Alberti and statues by Monnari brothers. Overall, it is a good display of the works of the bank, and shows the effort it takes to obtain these items.
The place was built in 1676, and finished in 1694, with many decorations continuing for another 20 years. The entry is an impressive sight, but watch out taking pictures. They are strict on this, even outside. The palazzo passed to the Egido family in 1808, and the CAtholic BAnco obtained. It went to them, and in 1976 and it was restored. Now called Banca Intesa, s owner.
