What you'll do

We offer a tour of the Villa (75-90 minutes ca.) and its amazing garden with our volunteers and our gardener. You will discover the history of the Italian family that lived there as well as the great work and project that the architect Piero Portaluppi, between 1932 and 1935, did for Necchi Campiglio family. Necchi family is also famous for the production of sewing machines. The Villa, nestling in an enchanted garden complete with swimming pool (amongst the earliest such facilities in a domestic context in Milan), is one of the iconic residences of that period. The tour will start with our gardener that will tell you the history of the garden and of the swimming-pool. After the visit outside the Villa, you will discover the beautiful interiors decorated by the famous designers and private collections of paintings. The tour includes also the visit of temporary exhibitions in the Villa.
