Who we are

The Friends of the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum Association was born in 1996 in order to support the museum in all its cultural, tutelage and highlighting activities dedicated to the exhibited patrimony.
Founded and presided by Laura Cellina Amisano until her death in 2012, the Association has among its first merit worthy activities the pioneering creation of a service of museum guards in the rooms that were entrusted to motivated and competent volunteers.
The activities of the association continue, today, under the guidance of President Anna Maria Bagatti Valsecchi and its board:

Speechati – Young Friends

Speechati is the section for the young members of the Friends of the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum Association.

Formed in 2013 by a group of university students wanting to ‘get moving,’ to spread the good word about the museum among their peers (from this the group’s name), and to contribute to focusing attention in Milan on art and culture.

The group organizes periodic activities alternating those held within the museum’s walls with those of cultural visits to other places, always enriched with a convivial moment.
