Museo Bagatti Valsecchi review Rate it

This late 19th-century neo-Renaissance palazzo - residence of the Bagatti Valsecchi brothers, Fausto and Giuseppe - opened as a museum in 1994, a tribute to the extraordinary tastes of the two collectors. When not messing around on penny-farthings and early hot air balloons, the brothers shared a taste for all things Renaissance, and strove to reproduce 15th-century palazzo life in their own home. Inside are numerous works of Renaissance art, Murano glass, Flemish tapestries and objets d'art dating up to the 19th century. Artefacts are not labelled, in order to preserve the feel of a private home; instead, information sheets in English are available in each room, and free English-language audio guides can be borrowed from the ticket desk.
