Official site

This villa’s incredible artistic, architectural and historic value is now getting a new lease on life thanks to a project aimed at turning the villa into a centre where people can enjoy and create art in the city of Milan.

Located in the Parco delle Groane and widely considered the Italian Versailles, the villa had been abandoned for decades and its furnishings sold at auction in the 1980s before it became the headquarters of the Augusto Rancilio Foundation. The vast estate includes the villa, the village, the woods, the farmland and church of San Guglielmo.

It reopened to the public in 2015 and since 1989 has hosted the prestigious music festival of Villa Arconati, where musicians from all over the world have performed, and many cultural events such as Terraforma, now in its fourth edition, an event dedicated to artistic experimentation and environmental sustainability.

Open: April-October
Opening times: Sundays 10.30 am-6.30 pm
Admission: charge
