Museo di Milano e Storia Contemporanea review Rate it

Fully renovated in 2002, the 18th-century Palazzo Morando Attendolo Bolognini is at once a living museum exhibiting the Countess Bolognini's collection of porcelain, sculptures and other objects in what were her private apartments, and home to a section of the city's civic art collections. The bulk of the artwork exhibited here consists of Luigi Beretta's collection, donated in 1935.

These paintings have helped historians create a thorough picture of the city as it was during the Napoleonic era and under Austrian rule, and chart its urban development over the years. The ground floor has been remodelled as a space for visiting exhibitions; recent shows have focused on Maria Callas, African photography, wartime resistance and Islamic art.
