The Bagatti Valsecchi Museum in Milan is one of the most important and best preserved house museums in Europe.
In 1975, the Bagatti Valsecchi family started a non-profit private foundation and have ever since managed this extraordinary collection of artisitc and decorative objects, collected in this family home since the 19th Century.
The museum was opened in 1994 and houses a valuable collection of Renaissance artefacts, including house paintings, sculptures, wooden furniture, arms, armour, ceramics, glass, gold, ivory, metal work and tapestries.
For those who make a trip to Milan, they should take the opportunity to visit and to attend one of the many activities organized by the museum: courses, seminars, conferences, concerts and theatre.
The museum is very easy to reach, being located as it is in the very heart of Milan.
For those who need a special venue for MICE purposes, the Bagatti Valsecchi House Museum is an excellent choice offering a snapshot in time of an historic house celebrating the Renaissance period (among the collections are the works of Giovanni and Gentile Bellini and Giampietrino Zenale). There is room for around 80 people in the central part of the Museum, the Hall of Honour, and so it can be used for meetings and conferences.
From 6pm, all 17 rooms of the museum are opened up and special guests and can enjoy a personal tour of the home.
