Poldi Pezzoli House Museum
Guided tour with Serena Spinelli
Wednesday, 17 January at 2:30pm
Embark on a captivating guided tour of the Poldi Pezzoli House
Museum with the esteemed art historian Serena Spinelli.
Immerse yourself in the private and noble residence of Gian Giacomo
Poldi Pezzoli, a sophisticated Milanese art collector from the tumultuous mid-Nineteenth Century. You will encounter a splendid fusion of Renaissance paintings, Venetian glass, ceramics, and exquisite furniture, showcasing the historical interior design that will delight your eyes and uplift your soul. While the palace itself traces its origins to the 18th century, the enchantment it exudes is timeless. It resonates in the succession of rooms once inhabited, the subtle creaking of the floorboards, the melodic tinkling of the fountain, and the precious silence enveloping this refined haven.
Under Serena’s expert and passionate guidance, you will enjoy a slow appreciation of the “ten masterpieces tour,” spanning the
works of Botticelli to Canaletto, and from Etruscan jewelry to stained glass and other intriguing
artifacts from Poldi Pezzoli’s Wunderkammer.
