What to expect

A chronological journey through Italian history, from Napoleon Bonaparte's first campaign in 1796 to the annexation of Rome to the Kingdom of Italy in 1870. The Museum of the Risorgimento in Milan retraces these milestones through prints, paintings, sculptures, drawings, weapons, and memorabilia scattered across 15 themed rooms, in addition to two rooms used for temporary exhibitions.

The museum originated from a number of artefacts and documents which were brought together in Milan for the 1884 Italian Exhibition in Turin. After the event these relics were brought back to Milan and transferred to the great hall of Porta Venezia's Public Gardens, where the Museum of the Risorgimento was inaugurated in 1886. In 1896 the exhibition venue was transferred to the Rocchetta rooms at the Sforza Castle. In 1943, because of the bombings that struck the castle, the museum was moved to Casa Manzoni. Finally, in 1950, the exhibition was transferred to Moriggia Palace, where it remains today.
