Poldi Pezzoli Museum

EXPLORE

A priceless collection in the heart of Milan

Created thanks to the passion for art-collecting of  the noble Milanese Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli (1822-1879), the Poldi Pezzoli is one of the most important and famous house-museums in the world, close to the Scala theatre and to the fashion district. This house-museum, beloved by the Milanese and international public, opened in 1881. It fascinates not only for the charm of the rooms evoking the past (from medieval times to the 18th century up to the Armoury with a work by the contemporary artist Arnaldo Pomodoro), but also for the variety and richness of its collections. Masterpieces by Old Masters, sculptures, carpets, lace and embroidery, arms and armour, jewels, porcelain, glass, furniture, sundials and clocks: over 5000 extraordinary pieces, from Antiquity to the 19th century, suspended in a magical atmosphere.
