These were taken mostly at the Museo Revoltella Gallery of Modern Art.  It is right near the harbor.  The gallery has some very good examples of Italian painters from the late 1800’s, and some from earlier as well but I find them less interesting.  The palace is itself worth a visit.  Pasquale Revoltella ran a successful import business and was active in insurance as well (Assicurazioni Generali).  This eventually led to his involvement with the construction of the Suez Canal, which he helped finance and was a member of the board of directors.
