A beautiful studio villa built by the artist in beautiful Santa Maria del Sacro Monte. There is a collection of objects gathered from around the world reminiscent of a small scale John Soanes house. The most interesting aspects are the experiments he built to test some of his designs and the highlight is the studio space itself with a wax cast of two of the doors he created for the Duomo in Milan. If you’re taking a hike up to see the chapels of Sacro Monte, make some time to visit here. Well worth it!! (Check opening times, which are very limited)

What an amazing home this must have been. Built of the side of the mountain with incredible views, inside this casa is full of Pogliaghi's lifetime of collecting. The garden is also festooned with interesting pieces. Interesting place and worth a visit

Most of the people who walk up Sacro Monte don't even realize the existence of this small museum on the left side of the path. The Villa hosts a very dense and eclectic collection that spans from Egyptian and Roman artifacts to Chinese vases and Javanese leather muppets, displayed along with the artist's own work. As his masterpiece is the main portal of the Duomo di Milano, a stunning 1:1 study copy occupies the largest room.

I was Wow'd by Lodovico Pogliaghi's determination to create a truly unique showcase of his antiquities that he assembled in his lifetime working throughout Northern Italy. It is reminiscent for me of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. I spent nearly an hour inside marveling at the collections in each awe-inspiring unique room. The grounds are a treasure trove too. If you like antiquities and want to see design out-of-the-ordinary in such a classic timely fashion, then do not hesitate to visit the Casa Museo Lodovico Pogliaghi. Would I return? Yes of course. Would I recommend it to others? Yes of course.
