Bagatti Valsecchi Museum is located in the heart of Milan, in the high-fashion district. The dwelling is one of the most important home museums of all Europe and Regione Lombardia bought it in 1975. The founders, the brothers Fausto and Giuseppe Valsecchi di Varedo, wanted to create an ambiance inspired by princely Lombard homes of the fifteenth and sixteenth century and it soon became a reference point for collectors and high society of that period.
The mansion preserves the Renaissance style furnishings and the art collections in their original places. The Bagatti Valsecchi Museum collections are revealed in the many rooms of the mansion: Entrance Stairway, Room of the Fresco, Bevilacqua room, Library, Room of the Valtellinese bed, Bathroom, Labyrinth Passageway, Cupola Gallery, Bagatti Valsecchi Room, Room of the Valtellinese Stove, Red Room, Green Room, Gran Salon, Dining Room, Study, Gallery of Arms. Among the most relevant pieces of the collection, you can see the wooden carved Valtellinese bed and the fifteenth century painting by Giovanni Bellini, representing Saint Giustina Borromeo.
