MUSEO BAGATTI VALSECCHI

Bagatti Valsecchi Museum is a house museum resulting from an extraordinary collection event of the late nineteenth century, which has two brothers as protagonists: the barons Fausto (Milan, 1843 – 1914) and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi (Milan, 1845 – 1934

Starting from the 1880s, the two began to renovate the family home in the heart of Milan, declining the demands of historicist culture in strict neo-Renaissance observance. At the same time, they began to collect 15-16th century paintings and artifacts of applied art to set them up in their home to create a dwelling inspired by 16th-century Lombard homes. Fausto and Giuseppe were personally involved in the restyling of the Palazzo.

After the death of Fausto and Giuseppe, Casa Bagatti Valsecchi continued to be inhabited by theirs until 1974. It was in that year that one of Giuseppe's sons decided to set up the Bagatti Valsecchi Foundation, to which he donated the patrimony of works of art. In 1994, the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum opened to the public. The Foundation acts in the spirit of protection, promotion, and enhancement of things of historical and artistic interest referred to in Law 1089 of June 1, 1939.
