A feast for the eyes: crossing the gneiss stone threshold, and entering in the picturesque and imaginative jumble of stairs, courtyards, porticoes and loggias where the roof tiles between one chimney and another offer nesting places not just to terracotta birds, but also to real ones, where the external walls are carpeted with heraldic crests, friezes and lots of different kinds of decorative elements. In the first courtyard, there is even a refined collection of bonsai. Next to citrus trees and cedars is a mysterious globe enclosing rare wild orchids.
In addition to being a leader in Lombard terracotta, the Curti Furnace is also a place to relax and find a corner of old Milan. In the frenetic city we all know, it is an oasi, where space and time have a human dimension.
The Friends of the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum Association has organized a visit for its members.
