The Biblioteca Ambrosiana is a historic library in Milan, which also houses the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, the Ambrosian Art Gallery named after the patron saint of Milan. It was founded by Cardinal Federigo Borromeo (1564-1631) who was a real connoisseur of art and outstanding collector of paintings, old books, manuscripts, incunabula and works of art, which formed the present day Biblioteca Ambrosiana. The collections include around 12,000 drawings by Lombard and European artists, 16,000 manuscripts, 3000 incunabula, and 450,000 printed books. It also contains Leonardo da Vinci's profusely illustrated Codex Atlanticus along with his other twelve manuscripts.
