The modernity of the new urban architecture
A key building in Portaluppi’s oeuvre, the residence in Via Mozart embodies the entry of modernity into the traditional architecture of the urban Villa, expressing both the innovations of the 20th century and Portaluppi’s extravagant, unfettered and highly original creativity. The additions, designed by architect Tomaso Buzzi in the post-war period, contribute to the richness and welcoming ambience of the interiors.
Two gems set within a jewel
Surrounded by a large garden, including a tennis court and a swimming pool, Villa Necchi Campiglio is a jewel that has remained unchanged over time, and is embellished by two other precious gems: the extraordinary Claudia Gian Ferrari collection of early 20th-century art, featuring works by Sironi, Martini and de Chirico; and the exceptionally refined collection of Alighiero and Emilietta De’ Micheli, which concentrates on 18th-century decorative arts and paintings, including works by Canaletto, Rosalba Carriera and Michele Marieschi.
