What You Can Expect

Guided Art Tour of Milan’s Museum of the Twentieth Century

Museo del Novecento

Meet your guide outside Museo del Novecento in Piazza Duomo, and after admiring the museum's exterior – the stylishly renovated Palazzo dell’Arengario building -- head straight inside with your expert local guide. Translated as the Museum of Twentieth Century Art, this tantalizing museum showcases some 400 works of contemporary Italian art from the last century.

While walking around admiring paintings and artifacts, your guide will explain some of the different 20th-century artistic movements like Cubism, Futurism and Metaphysical art. Hear of the impact these groundbreaking concepts made on the art world, when artists stepped away from their fascination with representational art.

Museum highlights that you’ll see include a canvas called Il Quarto Stato (The Fourth Estate) by Italian supremo Guiseppe Pellizza da Volpedo, as well as significant works by Umberto Boccioni, a Futuristic painter and sculptor. Head up to the museum’s top level to see a floor-to-ceiling panorama of Piazza Duomo -- sure to impress, even if modern art’s not your thing!

After two hours, your tour finishes inside the museum and you can continue exploring independently if you wish.
