Milan - Villas und palaces: House Museum Bagatti ValsecchiMostly represented styles: Renaissance

The House Museum Bagatti Valsecchi is an historic mansion located in the center of Milan, between two cross streets of the famous Montenapoleone street, now a museum open to the public since 1994.

It was the home of the brothers Fausto (Milan, 1843-1914) and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi (Milan, 1845-1934). Both barons, following the fashion of the end of '800, decided to transform their home, the palace Bagatti Valsecchi, in a collection of art. Unlike other cases (see, for example, the House Museum Poldi Pezzoli), where materials from various epoques were gathered together, the brothers Bagatti Valsecchi focused solely on a single epoque, the Lombardy Renaissance of the fourteenth and fifteenth century.
With great skill and aesthetic sense, the two brothers were able to donate to the main floor a perfect stylistic unity, so that event the smallest details are coherent with the rest and the collected works of art merge perfectly with the surrounding environment.
At the same time, the brothers Bagatti Valsecchi did not renounce to the most advanced amenities for those times: shower, sink with running water, central heating. However, without undermining the unity of style.
The main floor was divided into three zones: Fausto apartment, apartment of Giuseppe and common area.
In general the visitor is struck by the glitz, both of the structure (which even includes a gallery with a dome) and the furnishings.
There is also a small room where you can learn about the life of the brothers Bagatti Valsecchi through many interesting photographs.

The house was inhabited by the heirs until 1974. In that year, one of the sons of Giuseppe "constituted the Bagatti Valsecchi Foundation, to which the heritage of works of art collected by his ancestors were donated. In parallel, the mansion was sold to the region of Lombardy with the clause that the historic displays on the first floor were to be preserved “as is” in order to preserve the unbreakable tie between the “container” (the spaces) and the “contained” (the furnishings and art collections), one of the distinctive traits of the Bagatti Valsecchi brothers' collecting efforts. "

The house museum is currently open for a fee.
