VILLA NECCHI CAMPIGLIO – PROPERTY OF FAI (ITALIAN NATIONAL TRUST)

DSC01208The Villa, Acquired by FAI through the generosity of the Necchi Campiglio Family in 2001, is a jewel that scintillates in the heart of Milan. Built between 1932 and 1935 by Milanese architect Piero Portaluppi, Villa Necchi Campiglio is a sumptuous residence with generously proportioned interiors and stunning public rooms. Thanks also to its perfectly preserved outbuildings, the Villa encapsulates the history, rituals, worldly pleasures and day-to-day living of Milanese high society in the first half of the 20th century.
A key building in Portaluppi's oeuvre, the residence in Via Mozart embodies the entry of modernity into the traditional architecture of the urban Villa, expressing both the innovations of the 20th century and Portaluppi's extravagant, unfettered and highly original creativity. The additions, designed by architect Tomaso Buzzi in the post-war period, contribute to the richness and welcoming ambience of the interiors.
Surrounded by a large garden, including a tennis court and a swimming pool, Villa Necchi Campiglio is a jewel that has remained unchanged over time, and is embellished by two other precious gems: the extraordinary Claudia Gian Ferrari collection of early 20th-century art, featuring works by Sironi, Martini and de Chirico; and the exceptionally refined collection of Alighiero and Emilietta De' Micheli, which concentrates on 18th-century decorative arts and paintings, including works by Canaletto, Rosalba Carriera and Michele Marieschi.

MUSEO NAZIONALE DELLA SCIENZA E DELLA TECNOLOGIA LEONARDO DA VINCI

Image-01The National Museum of Science and Technology "Leonardo da Vinci" was created on 15th February 1953 and today is the largest museum of science and technology in Italy, one of the most important ones in Europe and in the world.
The Museum is dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci, symbol of the continuity between scientific-technological and artistic culture.
During more than 50 years of history, the Museum has gathered and preserved a remarkable heritage, documenting important stages of the scientific and technological development, with particular reference to our Country.
This heritage comprises the collections (15 thousand technical-scientific objects), the archive (paper and photos) and the library (40 thousand volumes and magazines) which witness the history of science, technology and industry, starting from the 19th century to the present.
Leonardo is one of the greatest examples of the union between humanism and science.
The original nucleus of this museum was an ample collection of models of his machines, which were reconstructed from his drawings. Ever since the Museum was founded in 1953, it has provided a fundamental starting point for exploring the complex relationship between humanity and machines.
