Breathtaking villa and garden in the heart of the city, in the fashion district . Owned by a famous industrialist, it has now been donated to Fai, an Italian organization which promotes art and less known buildings. Check visiting times, as it is not always open. A typical Milanese Liberty style, with plenty of architectural insights. A famous movie has... More

If you like architecture and a visit out of the crowds, do not miss this vist ! It's really well done, the house sits in a very nice garden (quite rare in Milano) and the interior is mostly original (1920's). I would definitely recommend ! Cheaper with the Milano card (7€ instead of 12€ if I remember well).

This amazing villa is an absolute masterpiece of rationalist architecture set in a fairy tale garden in the very center of Milano. Enjoy the peace sipping a coffee in the cafeteria and forget time and space. Definitely a must see!

A great and very interesting house. Sadly, the original family, who lived on the house into the 2000s, ripped out a lot of the very beautiful original architectural elements and furniture and replaced the decor with sappy Italianate gewgaws of no aesthetic interest. Go to have a look, ignore the top lawyer of bad taste. Must go set tours. This... More

I loved this whole experience, thie quietness of this corner of Milan, the gardens surrounding this 1930's Villa, build by the Milanese architect Piero Portaluppi. A villa I litterally fell in love with, for its clean lines, the simplicity and peculiarity of its modern architecture, the light provided by the wide windows and the squared structure, the impressive staircase, the...

Like many, I became aware of the beauty of the villa through Luca Guadagnino's sumptuous film "I Am Love". I just wanted to look around but guided tours are the only way to visit. It was absolutely worth it, as our guide regaled us with stories from one of Italy's rich dynasties and the two architects who, each in turn,... More

Guided tours timed. Lots of firsts such as a heated swimming pool and all ensuite bathrooms. Lots of 1935 fixtures and fittings. Interesting security measures given the huge plate glass windows. Our guide whizzed through but so informative. Really got a sense of how fascism influenced architecture.

The house must be visited with a guide (at least two tours in English daily) and like other FAI properties is free to UK National Trust members. The house belonged to the family who owned the Necchi sewing machine factory, and displays the work of a particular architect (Portaluppi) who designed other villas in Milan in the 1930s (see Casa...

Quite a gloomy house, just like it is in the film it appeared in (forget the name). The best bits are the ones with the original decor. Some interesting pieces like Napoleon's travel desk and one or two paintings but not a stunning collection. The tour gives a good feel for the people and the history of the house. There... More

Can't recommend this Villa enough. It's situated in the heart of the City, just off Corso Veneto yet feels as if it could be the middle of nowhere surrounded as it is by lush vegetation. The Necchi/Campiglio story gives a fascinating insight into pre and post war Milanese high society. The tour guides are knowledgeable and in-depth. Ultimately it's a... More
