Eye on Design | Milan | Villa Necchi Campiglio

Designed by architect Piero Portaluppi, Villa Necchi Campiglio is a glimpse, frozen in time, into the lives of an upper class Milanese family in the 1930’s. 

The villa sits in manicured grounds behind a high stone wall, a sanctuary hidden within bustling Milan.

The art and furnishings span the 18th to 20th centuries.  The exceptional attention to detail in the design of the villa is a feast for the eyes…decorative ceilings, veneered walls, inlay floors, a painted arched ceiling in a hallway of closets.

Recorded narration on headphones guides you on an individual tour, which allows you plenty of time to explore.  Don’t miss the Giorgio Morandi paintings in the living room, the row of blue urns in the conservatory, and the Arturo Martini bust in the library.  Glorious!
