Fondazione Stelline review Rate it

Built on the site of the original Santa Maria della Stella convent after the latter burned to the ground, Palazzo delle Stelline was designated by the far-famed Carlo Borromeo as an orphanage in 1578 - and continued to function as such until the 1970s. In 1986, the local municipality established the Fondazione Stelline, whose mission is to preserve the 500-year old building and promote cultural events in the Magenta neighbourhood.

Across a pretty internal courtyard is a small temporary exhibition space, the Sala del Collezionista, far from the traffic of corso Magenta. Featured shows range from 18th-century works by Lombard painter Cesare Ligari to sculptures by contemporary light artist, Massimo Uberti.
