The Bagatti Valsecchi Palace

read the post
The Bagatti Valsecchi Museum is a historic house museum that is the fruit of the extraordinary collecting experience of two brothers at the end of the 19th century: Barons Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi. Beginning in the 1880s, the two brothers dedicated themselves to the refurbishing of their family home nestled in the heart of Milan: a mansion between via Gesù and via Santo Spirito, today the center of Milan’s fashion quarter. In order to create a home inspired by sixteenth century Lombard mansions, they also began collecting fifteenth and sixteenth century paintings and decorative arts for it.
