Via Gesù, 5
The Museo Bagatti Valsecchi is a house-museum that is the result of an extraordinary collector’s affair at the end of the 19th century, involving two brothers: Barons Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi.
Beginning in the 1880s, the two set about renovating the family home in the heart of Milan, between Via Gesù and Via Santo Spirito, and were personally involved in the restyling of the Palazzo. At the same time, they began to collect 15th- and 16th-century paintings and artefacts of applied art with the intention of displaying them in their home in order to create a dwelling inspired by 16th-century Lombard houses.
Over the years, many cultural initiatives have enlivened the life of the Museum, even beyond the usual opening hours: musical events, plays, and opening hours: musical events, theatre plays, conversations, meetings with personalities from the world of culture culture, guided tours, aperitifs.
The Bagatti Valsecchi Museum belongs to the circuit of the 4 Museum Houses of the city of Milan.
