If you’re in Milan this April for Salone del Mobile take some time out away from the madness of the fair and visit Villa Necchi Campligio. A hidden gem right in the heart of the city.
Constructed between 1932 and 1935 by the Milanese architect Piero Portaluppi, Necchi Campiglio Villa has survived completely intact, both outside with its stunning garden and pool, and inside with its rich succession of rooms. Architecture, decorative arts, furnishings and collections express as a harmonious whole the high standard of living of the owners, who belonged to the upper middle class of Lombard industrial families.
If you’ve seen the movie ‘I AM LOVE’ and loved it as much as we did this is a must see. It was the family home around which the movie was based.
