Real black marble, brass, art. Everything extravagant. Villa Necchi is a true must visit.
The house, beautiful located in the center of Milan, was built between 1932 and 1935 by architect Piero Portaluppi and served as the home for Angelo Campiglio, his wife and his brother’s wife Nedda Necchi Gigina.
Villa Necchi has remained intact, both on the outside and the inside, and provides a fascinating view into the lives of those who once lived and worked there. The collection of decorative arts and furnishings further help the visitor to imagine what life must have been like in the villa in the 1930s.
Villa Necchi plays a central role in the 2009 film “Io Sono Amore” (I Am Love) directed by Luca Guadagnino and starring Tilda Swinton.
We went on a guided tour inside the house, where these photos ended up on the iPhone.
