Expo 2015: a new Louvre in Milan's Brera district?

Milan is a city holding its breath for the 2015 Expo when the event will hopefully breathe some new life into a city that often struggles to have its cultural qualifications recognised.
The Brera district of Milan is truly beautiful, and may house an ambitious museum project for the city to rival that of the Louvre in Paris.

The Pinacoteca di Brera may expand to include the Accademia and the carabinieri police station, as reported by Milano Finanza, creating one of Europe’s largest museums.
The management of the museum would be subject to a foundation in which private investment is also welcome.

While the Pinacoteca di Brera may not be quite at the level of the il Louvre, it still hosts some important artworks including works from Canaletto, Caravaggio and Modigliani.
Could we see a campaign for the return of the Mona Lisa to italy?!
