The Heritage Museum of Rovinj
Time Out says
Founded by a group of local artists in 1954, the Rovinj Heritage Museum houses Istria’s prime collection of Italian art from the 1400s onwards. Renaissance gems by the great Venetian Giovanni Bellini and the school of Bonifazio de Pitati share second-floor space with Baroque painter such as Nicolò Grassi, Antonio Zanchi and Marco Ricci. One flight below is a floor of Croatian art from the later 20th century and there’s also a section dedicated to Rovinj artists from the same period – some of whom would have helped set up this very museum. Summer sees a flurry of temporary exhibitions by local artists – and also big international names and genres such as Picasso, Dalí, Chagall and Pop Art.
