Exhibition layout
Opened in 1974, the Municipal Francesco Messina Studio Museum is housed in the deconsecrated old church of San Sisto. The Sicilian artist, who adopted Milan as his home, wanted to have some of his works kept in Milan.
The museum, which displays around eighty sculptures (in plaster, multicoloured terracotta, bronze and wax) and thirty graphic works (lithographs, pastels, watercolours and pencil drawings), has three exhibition floors (-1, 0 and 1), connected to each other by 3 consecutive sets of 7 steps (h 13 cm). The artist's studio is on the first floor.
