The Museo Poldi Pezzoli, Cimitero Monumentale, and Alessandro Manzoni’s tomb: Margherita Maccapani Missoni Amos’ Milan

All this week in preparation for Salone del Mobile and miart, we’re hearing from leading design, art, culture, and lifestyle experts on how they enjoy Milan.

Cimitero Monumentale is, without a doubt, one of the most magical and inspiring places in Milan. Many famous Italian artists and architects have contributed works to the cemetery, which is essentially a spectacular open-air gallery. The tomb of Alessandro Manzoni is especially awe-inspiring with its azure ceiling and remarkable architecture. The Museo Poldi Pezzoli is another favorite spot of mine. Located near the Teatro alla Scala, it houses some of the most significant Italian art in the world, including pieces by Botticelli, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Pinturicchio, and Perugino. Also, there are many private gardens in Milan, hidden behind the walls of the city’s oldest palazzos. They are the city’s best-kept secret, only open to the public one day a year during Porte Aperte, an initiative organized by Fondo Per l’Ambiente Italiano (FAI).”
