Milan – The Boschi Di stefano House Museum
The Boschi Di Stefano House Museum is a museum of the Municipality of Milan, open to the public since 2003, that exhibits around three hundred works of the extraordinary 20th-century art collection collected by Antonio Boschi and Marieda Di Stefano.
The Boschi Di Stefano House Museum is a unique place: the collection is in fact displayed in the same spaces where it was originally placed, that is, in the apartment of Antonio Boschi and Marieda Di Stefano on the second floor of the building in via Jan 15, designed by the famous Milanese architect Piero Portaluppi between 1929 and 1930.
Visiting the House Museum also allows one to know and appreciate an exceptional testimony of Milan’s collecting in the 20th century, attentive also and above all to its contemporary artistic production, and to savor the spirit of an era, from the 1930s to the 1970s. This is also contributed by the precious furnishings in style, purchased by the Boschi Di Stefano Foundation at the time of the opening of the House Museum.
The eleven rooms of the House Museum present the works according to a criterion of chronological succession and qualitative selection: from Italian 20th century art to Mario Sironi, from the Corrente group, Morandi and De Pisis to the School of Paris and the Chiaristi, from Lucio Fontana to Spatialism and Informal art.
