This is really an exhibition centre, though the entrance on the cathedral side is quite impressive, and you can cut through here to Piazza di Ferrari via a large open span reception area.

I saw both the elliott erwitt and Henry Bresson photography exhibitions that were on in may and loved them. Absolutely worth the 15 euro entry fee if you love photography.
