The Museum of Decorative and Renaissance ArtThe Bagatti Valsecchi Museum is set in what was a family home in the heart of Milan. In the 19th century, it was the home of the Bagatti family, led by the baron brothers Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi. Since the 1880's, the two brothers have made tremendous efforts to renovate their family home and cultivate their art collection.
In 1975, after extensive work of conservation and maintenance in the building, its rooms were opened to the public. Today, the museum houses a large collection of Renaissance artworks.
This allows a fascinating glimpse of a rich family life in Milan of the past. From antique furniture, through painted ceilings and special floor paintings, to art that includes magnificent paintings and sculptures, through a variety of special tools on display, including Murano glassware, ceramic products, carpets, artwork, ivory carvings, rare gold jewelry, carved furniture and more.
The museum has a small shop with items that were inspired by the art objects that are exhibited in the museum.
