Gallerie dell'Accademia, Sala dell'Albergo (Room XXIV)
The Gallerie dell'Accademia's Sala dell'Albergo is one of the latest masterpieces in this storied institution to receive a top-to-bottom restoration. Restoration efforts, which wrapped up in 2012, focused on the room's 15th-century wooden ceiling, ornate with carvings and gild. The room is also decorated with works by master painters such as Titian, Giampietro Silvio, and Girolamo Dente. The newly restored room within the Gallerie dell' Accademia stands on its own, worth the visit.
