Villa Necchi Campiglio in via Mozart is one of the most magnificent home museums of the city and it is considered an unmatched model for beauty and preservation of a private villa of the thirties. The Necchi family, entrepreneurs in the field of sewing machines and enamelled cast iron, did not want to limit the expenses to construct the building that soon became a symbol of culture and success.
Architecture, decorative arts, furnishings and collections express as a harmonious whole the high standard of living of the owners. Constructed between 1932 and1935 by the architect Piero Portaluppi, Necchi Campiglio Villa has survived completely intact and it is surrounded by an ample yard, tennis court and pool. Inside you can admire two collections: Claudia Gian Ferrari’s collection with masterpieces of the twentieth century of Boccioni, Balla, Moranti and Carrà and Alighiero and Emilietta de’ Micheli’s collection with 130 masterpieces of the eighteenth century.
Necchi Campiglio Villa is part of the Milan Historic House Museum Network together with Bagatti Valsecchi Museum, the Boschi Di Stefano Historic House Museum and Poldi Pezzoli Museum.
