Museum of Decorative Arts

The Museum of Decorative Arts in Milan is one of the most important collections of this type existing in Italy. It is located in the Castello Sforzesco, in some of the rooms of the Ducal Court and on the second floor of the Rocchetta.

The Museum of Decorative Arts documents the evolution of taste and styles in sumptuary, decorative and applied arts from the early Christian era to the 1950s, reaching the 21st century as regards artistic glass.

Along the exhibition path there are masterpieces and artefacts of exceptional quality, precious documents of the work of glassmakers, potters, carvers, luthiers, silversmiths, goldsmiths, armourers, tapestry makers and weavers active in Europe since the Middle Ages. The collection includes tapestries, weapons, ivories, bronzes, ceramics, leathers, wrought irons, majolica, goldsmiths, watches, porcelain, enamels, fabrics, scientific instruments, glass. The weapons and some tapestries are exhibited in the first rooms of the Ducal Court; the second floor of the so-called Rocchetta is instead entirely dedicated to applied arts.
