Dante Study

This room, one of the most attractive of the museum, was Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli’s private study, next to his bedroom. Designed by Giuseppe Bertini and Luigi Scrosati between 1853 and 1856, is the only remaining example of the painted decoration of the house and an early testimony of the European Historicism revival. The room is inspired by the Medieval time and by Dante, who appears in the frescoes and in the stained-glass windows created by Bertini himself.
In this room Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli used to keep the most important pieces of his collections of applied arts.
The study was restored between 2000 and 2002 .
