HISTORICAL MENTION

The Museum Bagatti Valsecchi t is an house museum, placed in the heart of Milan and born from the passion of Bagatti Valsecchi barons for the collecting and their above, which transformed in one of the example most precious of the fifth-sixteenth-century Lombard art.


The brothers Fausto and Giuseppe from the 80 years of the XIX century undertaken in first person with the restyling of the Palace, collecting with competence and refined taste paintings and artifacts of applied art and providing for his decoration. Expressing  Valsecchi House magnificent for the posterity it has been the meaning of a complete life for these two gentlemen.

Fausto brilliant and worldly, and Giuseppe, more reserved, even if they had a different personality, they were tied from deep feeling and after their death the heirs lived the House until 1974. Pasino, one of Giuseppe’s children, decided to create the Bagatti Valsecchi Foundation, from which, after the alienation to the Lombardy  region, in 1994 born the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum, with the clause that the historical set-up of the nobile level were entirely conserved.

HOUSE'S ROOMS
Description ‘There is nothing, not even something secondary, that isn’t antique, or in imitation of the antique. For that reason, everything is harmonious and perfectly in style,’ noted the renowned architect Vespasiano Paravini in 1885, when he visited the rooms of the Bagatti Valsecchi home. In this way, the rooms of the Bagatti Valsecchi home became an arena of endeavor for a vast array of able Lombard craftsmen. Theirs was the responsibility of finding solutions to inserting then-modern domestic comforts—electricity, a shower, water basins with a drain, hot and cold running water—into the rooms without disturbing their stylistic unity.
THE COLLECTIONS
DESCRIPTION The words with Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi reviewed his above are these: “…It was not intended to create a museum, or a collection, rather to reconstruct the dwelling of a princely inhabitation around the middle of the 16th century in which one found objects of the 15th and 16th centuries of the most varied kind: paintings, tapestries, rugs, furniture, arms, ceramics, bronzes, glass, jewels, iron and domestic objects of all kinds, all collected with studious care and returned to their original use”. In such a context, the same antique objects collected  with passion by the two brothers became objects of daily use, employed in their domestic and everyday lives. Moreover the Museum includes an incredible collections of arms and armatures built on an ancient model arm’s room, spectacular and in step with the taste of the lombard collecting eighteeth-century.

It is is the largest room in the Bagatti Valsecchi home with an important high ceiling with imposing wooden coffers decorated with gilded pinecones. The large central chandelier is aided by eight wall sconces and four standing lamps, initially run on gas and then were immediately transformed for electricity.
