[US] The Gabriel Cromer Collection / George Eastman Museum Housed at the George Eastman Museum and the Bibliothèque nationale de France (Paris), the Gabriel Cromer Collection is one of the most significant collections of early French photography in the world. The Eastman Museum’s holdings represent the most extensive collection of such materials outside of France and comprise more than six thousand objects, including books, albums, journals, original documents and letters, ephemera, and other printed materials; paintings, drawings, caricatures, silhouettes, and sculpture; all manner of equipment and apparatus; pre-cinema devices; and a considerable number of rare and important photographs. Gabriel Cromer (French, 1873–1934) studied law and began to make photographs while he was a student. Rather than practice law, however, Cromer turned to photography as a profession and began collecting photographica around 1906.
Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin The Alte Nationalgalerie is the original home of the Nationalgalerie, whose collections today are divided between the Neue Nationalgalerie, the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, the Friedrichswerdersche Kirche, Museum Berggruen and the Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg. The idea of establishing a cultural and educational centre across from the Berlin Palace dates back to the time of Friedrich Wilhelm IV, who dreamt of creating a "sanctuary for art and science" on the site. The basic architectural concept for the Alte Nationalgalerie – a temple-like building raised on a plinth decorated with motifs from antiquity – came from the king himself.
MoMA Founded in 1929, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in midtown Manhattan was the first museum devoted to the modern era. Today MoMA’s rich and varied collection offers a panoramic overview of modern and contemporary art, from the innovative European painting and sculpture of the 1880s to today's film, design, and performance art. From an initial gift of eight prints and one drawing, the collection has grown to include over 150,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, architectural models and drawings, and design objects; approximately 22,000 films and four million film stills; and, in its Library and Archives, over 300,000 books, artist books, and periodicals, and extensive individual files on more than 70,000 artists. Collection highlights include Claude Monet’s Water Lilies, Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night, and Pablo Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, along with more recent works by Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Murray, Cindy Sherman, and many others.
Bibliotheca Mechanico-Architectonica home english The Bibliotheca Mechanico-Architectonica project, inspired by an idea of Antonio Becchi, Federico Foce and Santiago Huerta, aims to provide a meeting place for anyone dealing in history “between mechanics and architecture”. The material offered to its users facilitates source consultation and allows them to make continuous updates on topics concerning mechanics applied to architecture. The Bibliotheca works in conjunction with the Between Mechanics and Architecture project set up by Edoardo Benvenuto and Patricia Radelet-de Grave, its first Symposium Entre Mécanique et Architecture being held within the XIX International Congress of History of Science (Zaragoza, August 1993). In the following years, the Between Mechanics and Architecture research group organised several international study events (Genoa 1996, Liège 1997, Pescara 1998) and, in July 1999, after Edoardo Benvenuto’s death (1998), founded the Edoardo Benvenuto Association in Genoa.

Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid Founded in 1990 after originally being created as an art centre, Museo Reina Sofía is among the culminating events of the Spanish transition to democracy, recovering Pablo Picasso's Guernica as well as an outstanding representation of the international avant-gardes and neo-avant-gardes. In short, the founding of this museum means the recuperation of the experience of modernity previously missing from the Spanish context and the opportunity to try out new models of narration from a periphery that is neither lateral nor derivative, but is rather an entry way for new stories, historiographic models and artistic episodes that tip the balance of the orthodox canon of the main museums. The institution no longer considers its task to be simply the transmission of culture. Instead, it works with other agents and institutions, creating networks and alliances that strengthen the public sphere and position Museo Reina Sofía as a reference of prime importance in the geopolitical South.
Musée Archéologique d'Athènes - Collections The National Archaeological Museum is the largest museum in Greece and one of the most important in the world. Originally destined to receive all the 19th century excavations, mainly from Attica and other parts of the country, it gradually took the form of a central National Archaeological Museum and was enriched with finds from all parts of the Greek world. His rich collections, enumerating more than 11,000 exhibits, offer the visitor a panorama of ancient Greek culture from the prehistory to the late antiquity. The museum is housed in the imposing neoclassical building, built at the end of the 19th century in designs by L. Lange and eventually formed by Ernst Ziller. Its exhibition grounds, dozens of halls on each floor, cover an area of 8,000 m². and houses the five major permanent collections: The Collection of Prehistoric Antiquities, which includes works of the great civilizations that developed in the Aegean from the 6th millennium to 1050 BC.

Uffizi Gallery (Florence, Italie) - Visite virtuelle The Uffizi was designed by Giorgio Vasari in 1560 for Cosimo I de'Medici to house the Granducal Magistratures of Tuscany. Over time, the top floor loggia became an exhibition of the dynastic collection of ancient sculpture, artwork and artifacts. The eastern wing of the building incorporated the ancient Florentine church of San Pier Scheraggio and the wing to the west connected with two existing buildings, the Mint and the Loggia dei Lanzi. Vasari conceived an architectural module to be repeated all along the building: a portico flanked by two pillars, with niches on the ground floor and three windows on the upper story. In 1565, on the occasion of the marriage of his son Francesco to Giovanna d'Austria, Cosimo I asked Vasari to design a raised passageway connecting Palazzo Vecchio with Palazzo Pitti, the new residence of the family.
