The Museum will be open from Thursday to Sunday, with longer hours on weekends in the morning. It will be possible to access the rooms on Thursday and Friday from 13:00 to 17:45, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 to 17:45. In compliance with the quota rules, the rooms of the Museum can accommodate only a few visitors at a time: it is mandatory to purchase the ticket online in advance from the site www.museobagattivalsecchi.org for visits on Saturday and Sunday, but advance sales are also recommended in the others days of the week.
Those who visit the Museum from 6 to 9 May will receive the Friends of the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum card free of charge which gives the right to unlimited and free admissions throughout the year, to a wide range of benefits, reductions and conventions, as well as the possibility to participate in all the events and cultural visits organized for members and reserved for them.
A HOUSE TO TELL
“During the months of closure, our house museum worked on the programming of the next seasons, with the desire to affirm its essence as a historic home, a concept expressed in the new payoff – a house to tell.”Says the President Camilla Bagatti Valsecchi. Yes, because the brothers Fausto and Giuseppe transformed the family home into the re-enactment of an elegant Lombard Renaissance residence, with a nod to the technological innovations of the time. The “artistic house” in Via Gesù was one of the first homes in Milan to be equipped with electric lighting, while the great attention paid to the artefacts of applied art for domestic use places it at the roots of future Milanese design.
