The Museum of Capuchin Patrimony in Milan was opened in 2001 to acquaint the public – through the works of art belonging to the Franciscan Capuchin Order – with the religious presence of this order in Lombardy since 1535, and which is still quite active in social, cultural and religious circuits.
Recently, the permanent collection, alternating with temporary exhibits, has been given a new setting, innovative, welcoming, more ample and versatile. This significant intervention was made possible by the equally significant contributions of a Milanese professional, Giancarlo Rusconi, who not only donated money to the work, but also entrusted the museum with the permanent loan of sixteen works by famous 19th century artists from his private collection: Boccioni, Carrà, De Pisis, Fiume, Lilloni, and Sironi.
