Villa Necchi Campiglio in Milan
Villa Necchi Campiglio in Milan

description
Built between 1932 and 1935 by the Milanese architect Piero Portaluppi and later modernized by his colleague Tomaso Buzzi, Villa Necchi Campiglio is a sumptuous family residence situated in the heart of Milan, surrounded by a large garden, including a tennis court and a swimming pool. Although the building is still not well known as one of Portaluppi’s works, it is an extraordinary example of a modernist urban villa, set in a context of great architectural charm. Donated to the FAI in 2001, after careful restoration it became a house-museum and has now been enriched with the addition of two valuable collections: the collection of early 20th-century works of art by Claudia Gian Ferrari (with work by Arturo Martini, Giorgio Morandi, Giorgio de Chirico, Mario Sironi and others) and the collection of 18th-century paintings and decorative objects donated by Alighiero and Emilietta de’ Micheli (with paintings by Canaletto, Tiepolo, Marieschi and Rosalba Carriera, in addition to miniatures by Jean Baptiste Isabey and some very fine ceramics).

The guide illustrates in a clear lively style the architecture, history and daily routine of the residential complex which, having survived war-time bombs unscathed and remained untouched over the years, has come down to us as it was originally conceived, the perfect expression of the genius of its designer, but also a window on a period and the elegant life-style of the owners, renowned members of the Lombardy upper class, whose name is linked in Italian memory to the celebrated sewing machines.
