This is the state of the art for mid-century built well before the mid century. I loved Alice, my tour guide, who pointed out the thoughtful design of every piece of furniture. Just a spectacular visit . It was a privilege to be given entry to such a place.

The Villa Necchi Campiglio, situated in the Porta Venezia part of Milan is a wonderful example of art deco architecture with a fully restored interior and wonderful gardens. Opened to the public after the death of the last Necchi sewing machine heiress in 2001, it is free to National Trust members and €9 to others. There are guided tours in... More

Villa Necchi Campiglio is tucked away in a small side street (Via Mozart) off the busy Corso Venezia, only a stone's throw from Milan's city centre. The villa was built in the early 1930s according to designs of Italian architect Piero Portaluppi for a family of wealthy industrialists. The villa is a beautiful example of modernist architecture and one can... More

It was Alice, our tour guide from 'Milan Private Tours' who told us about this place and boy I'm glad she did. This house once belonged to a famous and wealthy industrialist in the 1930's where he lived with his wife and her Sister. The last of the three still lived there until in to the 90's, however it's like... More

This incredible villa is set in a beautiful private garden. Visits are by tour only. If you speak English you generally don't have to wait long for an English speaking tour. Enjoy the park, small gift shop or use the toilet while waiting. Tours are conducted by knowledgeable volunteers. This home, about 2000 sq. meters was built in the 20's... More

The Villa was built in the 30's and is perfectly preserved. Luckily they got a donation of art that compliments the villa's dec arts and original holdings so it's even better done now than it was then. However it is not a fantastical or museographic setting at all, the day-today appearance is there 100% you can even see the closets... More

Villa Necchi Campiglio is really interesting to visit if you appreciate grand homes, modern architecture from the 1930s and / or history in general. I visited recently with my partner and we were offered an English-language tour upon arrival (which I did not expect -- I would call or email ahead to check, we must have been lucky) and the...

Worth a visit if you are in architecture. A glimpse in the life of a very well off family at the beginning of last century. Marvellous house in splendid location. Well kept by FAI.
