Art, Architecture and Interiors

October 2 – 9, 2009

Some of the places of this multi-faceted city we will visit during the tour.

A historic house built in 1881 for a wealthy Milanese and now transformed in a Museum but left intact with furnishing and art representing the style of that time.

Poldi Pezzoli 



A mid century apartment completed with its collection of modern art (from Futurism to Lucio Fontana, to Morandi, Severini, Piero Manzoni and so much more)




A surprising villa in the center of Milan, an example of rationalist architecture of 1930


with its Mid century furnishing and art collection.




The Pirelli Tower, the tallest building in the city at 417 feet, designed in the late 50's by famed architect Gio Ponti and soon considered another symbol of Milan and of its extraordinary economic boom. Today the head office of the Lombardy region resides here. From the top level the most amazing panoramic view of the city.
