Villa Necchi Campiglio

Overview

In the late twentieth century, Piero Portaluppi, a Milanese architect, designed a residential complex in Via Mozart for Angelo Campiglio and his sisters, Gigina and Nedda, who belong to the Lombard upper bourgeoisie. Portaluppi independently designs the main villa, the garden, the concierge, the greenhouse, the garage, the pool and the tennis court, taking care of the smallest details.
What makes Villa Necchi Campiglio an exceptional work of Lombard architecture is the harmonious combination of constructive and decorative elements, from the moldings of the ceilings to the gates of the tennis court, and the covers.
Thanks to the intact architectural structure and the history of furniture, objects of use and well-preserved collections, therefore almost unchanged over time, the house in Via Mozart continues to testify to the life of a bygone era.
Not to forget the donations of Claudia Gian Ferrari, who adds to the visit a collection of works of art of the early twentieth century, and that of Alighiero and Emilietta de' Micheli, which bring to light paintings and decorative arts of the eighteenth century.
The richness and quality of the objects and works of art that are found there make Villa Necchi Campiglio a real museum of decorative art: from French furniture in the 'Louis XV' style to English silver of the nineteenth century, from the precious tapestries of Brussels to the various objects of oriental art in bronze and porcelain.
In this house, still today, as desired by its inhabitants, a domestic atmosphere is maintained, thanks also to the presence of everyday objects.
