Museum of Milan and of Modern History

Museum of Milan and of Modern History

In the 18th century, the noble Villa family commissioned the overhaul of an existing 16th-century building, turning it into a rococo palazzo, which was then acquired by the Morando Attendolo Bolognini family in the early 20th century. The 18th-century renovations are betrayed by the two wrought-iron balconies above the entrance portals, by the grand staircase and by the rooms on the piano nobile. In 1945, the last owner donated the building to the City of Milan, and in the period 1958-1963 the local council converted it for use as the Museum of Milan and of Modern History.
