If you need inspiration and you are in the proximity of Milan, we can only recommend a visit to the biggest collection of everyday objects in Milan, the Mangini Bonomi Museum, imagined and created by founder Emilio Carlo Mangini and inaugurated on 27th February 1985.
Set in the oldest part of Milan, renown for its Roman foundations, the museum is housed in a five-floors building, once a workshop for the best artisans from Lombardy then a museum and residence. In the basement of the building there are still two ancient wells that have brought to light fragments of Roman life and just outside the building a stretch of Roman wall was found, a perimeter to the Forum.
Initially collector and later founder of the museum, Emilio Carlo Mangini wanted to display and remind us of these testimonies of the past, now too often forgotten.
With over 3,692 object divided in 40 sections, the collection tells of different lifestyles, everyday objects linked to stories, history and cultures, some of which offer unique insights to understand the daily life of the city. There is a wide range of objects on display, from furniture and lamps to clothes, playing cards, religious and archaeological objects and more.
A wonderful corner in Medieval style immersed in a neoclassical and baroque city such as Milan.
