The Museum-Home


The Boschi Di Stefano Museum-Home at number 15, Via Giorgio Jan, has been open to the public since February 2003. In these premises – once inhabited by the married couple Antonio Boschi (1896-1988) and Marieda Di Stefano (1901-1968) – about three-hundred pieces are exhibited selected from over two thousand works, donated to the City of Milan in 1974.

The collection – which comprises paintings, sculptures and drawings – is an extraordinary testimony to the history of Twentieth Century Italian art from the first decade to the end of the Sixties.

The Museum-Home is located in a small block built in the Nineteen Thirties by Piero Portaluppi. The interiors, restored by the City of Milan, were fitted and furnished by the Boschi Di Stefano Foundation, established in 1998.

The works have been selected on the basis of their quality, and arranged in chronological order in eleven exhibition areas, under the supervision of Maria Teresa Fiorio, ex Director of the Civiche Raccolte d’Arte of Milan. The furnishings of these spaces – such as the dining room designed by Mario Sironi in 1936 – were chosen for their historical relevance.

The Museum of the Twentieth Century


Other works belonging to the Boschi Di Stefano Collection, listed here, are displayed in the Museum of the Twentieth Century, which opened in 2010. Also a model of a part of the home is on display in a small room near the entrance to the museum. The interior of the room is by Alessandro and Francesco Mendini’s Atelier with details based on the communal parts of the home at 15 via Jan, designed by Piero Portaluppi (including a replica of the lamp in the hallway). Details of the original apartment of the collectors, on the other hand, have been reconstructed (by Clara Rota) inside the model.
The room also contains a screen which gives information on other places in Milan where Twentieth Century Italian paintings and architecture can be seen.
