Our travel today is to Lombardy and we are going to the historical center of Milan to visit an ancient house: the Barons Bagatti Valsecchi Museum.

  The Bagatti Valsecchi Museum is situated in the historical center of the city: the most famous center, I mean the one of Montenapoleone and of the most cool and trendy streets.

  The so-called “noble” floor of the Bagatti Valsecchi mansion, restructured in the 1880s in the Neo-Renaissance style, houses the splendid home of the brothers Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi.

 The Lombard Renaissance art and decorative arts collections of the barons Bagatti Valsecchi are displayed in their home as they wished them to be.

 In this way, the rich collection of paintings and 15th-16th century objects was melded with the rooms destined to contain it in order to form a fascinating unified ambiance .

 Paintings by Old Masters, such as Giovanni Bellini or Giampietrino, majolica, Renaissance glass, 15th century furnishings, ivory, objects in precious metals, arms and armor compose the exceptionally rich patrimony of the house museum.

  Everything has been haused to embellish the striking rooms created under the careful supervision of the two Bagatti Valsecchi brothers.

 The visit to this beautiful House, that you can't miss while visiting the cities of art in Italy, is even more exciting if you can count on a very special guide; I was so lucky as I had the good fortune to be accompanied by Stella: she is so prepared and so kind, really a nice lady of the house!

Leisure with me: this is my tourism!
