The Boschi Di Stefano House-Museum: an apartment for the 20th century

One could say Milan’s Boschi Di Stefano House-Museum is home to Italy’s 20th century art, because of the incredibly long list of artists who “live” in this splendid aristocratic apartment, designed between 1929 and 1931 by Piero Portaluppi (the brilliant Milanese architect who also designed the beautiful Villa Necchi Campiglio, about whom we’ve written in the past).

Here you will find paintings, sculptures and drawings by famous artists from Boccioni to Funi, from Tozzi to Casorati, from Martini to Carrà, from Morandi to Rosai, from Severini to Scialoja. And the list goes on with Modigliani, De Chirico, Marussig, Savinio, De Pisis, Martini, Fontana, Manzù, Guttuso, Mafai, Manzoni… not to mention foreign artists like Kodra, Picasso, Léger and Permeke.

Antonio Boschi (1896-1988) and his wife Marieda Di Stefano (1901-1968) donated these approximately 2,000 extraordinary specimens of 20th-century Italian art to the Milan Municipality in 1974.

Their home opened to the public in 2003, and can be visited for free.
