Lonely Planet review

Set in a beautiful garden with tall magnolia trees, this villa is a symbol of Milan’s modernist imaginings in the early 1930s. Designed by Rationalist architect Piero Portaluppi for Pavian heiresses Nedda and Gigina Necchi, the house blends art deco and rationalist styles symbolising an outlook that was astoundingly modern while at the same time anchored in a world that was fast slipping away.

Quotidian details – Bauhaus-influenced monograms on hair brushes, silk evening frocks hanging at the ready – are as enthralling as the sleek architectural lines and big ticket artworks by Morandi and de Chirico.
