Who we are

Founded in 1975, the Bagatti Valsecchi Foundation Onlus is a ‘private law’ entity created by the heirs of Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi as the instrument for preserving the unified whole made up of the art collections and their placement in the historic apartments on the noble, or first, floor of the mansion of the same name. Since 1998, the foundation has become an Onlus, that is, a non-profit organization dedicated to an activity of social utility.

Today, the Bagatti Valsecchi Foundation Onlus has as its mission the management of the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum, which preserves and makes available to the public – in the very rooms for which they were intended and from which they are perpetually inseparable – the art collections of the brothers, Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi. The foundation acts in the spirit of tutelage, promotion, highlighting and promoting things of historico-artistic interest, according to the Italian law, June 1, 1939, n. 1089.

Pasino Bagatti Valsecchi (Milan, 1901-1976), heir of the family’s art collections, decided to donate the collections of Renaissance art and daily objects collected at the end of the 19th century by his uncle, Fausto, and his father, Giuseppe, to the foundation. At the same time, the mansion was sold to the Region of Lombardy with the proviso that the historic displays on the noble, or first, floor of the building would be conserved in their integrity in order to preserve the indissoluble tie between the “contained” (that is, the collections) and the “container” (that is, the spaces for which they were intended), the distinctive feature of the collection history of the Bagatti Valsecchi. The 22 November 1994 opening of the museum to the public marked a fundamental step in the life of the foundation.

In fact, this desire was one of the strongest motivations for the constitution of the foundation. Pasino and his heirs wanted to protect the Bagatti Valsecchi home and its collections from the risk of the dispersion and dismembering that almost every passage to the next generation entails. They were fully aware that it was an extraordinary example of collecting and culture of the end of the 19th century. Alongside the precise will to preserve and care for the fruit of the collecting activities of their ancestors was not just the desire to open the home in via Gesù to the public, but also to make it a museum that the public could visit and enjoy.
