Casa Museo Boschi Di Stefano, opened in 2003, represents a journey through the Italian art of the twentieth century.
The spouses Antonio Boschi and Marieda Di Stefano were fond for collecting art and cultivated sincere and direct relationships with many artists among the greatest on the Italian and international scene. Throughout their life, they collected an impressive amount of works of art in what was their home. They left the apartment, together with the whole art collection to the Municipality of Milan in 1973.
Now a public house museum with free entrance, it showcases about three hundred Twentieth-Century art masterpieces, out of the over two thousand pieces that form the collection. The eleven rooms of the house have been set up as a picture gallery, which still retains the flavour of an actual house. Furnishings (that mostly aren't the original ones) were carefully chosen by the Foundation Boschi di Stefano to match with the arworks.
