Absolutely to visit, the new lighting of the paintings on the first floor is literally SPECTACULAR, they seem to be backlit. Forms, colors, details like I had never seen before. Only this is worth the ticket price. It is a pity that the whole show is not so well lit but I trust that they will do it in a short time even in all the other art galleries in Italy.

The visit was pleasant, well accompanied by the audio guide, with an adequate temperature in the salons. In some rooms I found some improvements compared to my last visit: the led lights on the paintings, the penumbra in the rooms, the digital insights very well done. We did a little more effort with the paper folding to match the number of rooms (perhaps it would be better to put an actual correspondence between the tablet and the room clearly when entering). The part of Leonardo in the show was not very large and compared to the expectations of the advertising of the event he was a little disappointed. However: the arrangement of the restored correspondence of the School of Athens and the many well-classified and exhibited paintings are very beautiful. I found new and particular that of the Flemish authors, and the final work of the Musico attributed to Leonardo (inside the reading room) at the end of the journey.

Since it takes 120 minutes to visit the Pinacoteca well, I don't understand why they gave me the opportunity to book at 5pm. It was not pleasant to discover at the entrance that it was useless to buy the audio guides because there was no time !!!! This information must be clearly visible when booking. We were 6, we didn't just want to take a walk inside the building! The ride was still nice, but this disappointed us.
