The Casa Museo Boschi Di Stefano is a historic house museum situated in Via Jan where 300 works from the Boschi Di Stefano collection may be viewed. Antonio Boschi (1896-1988) and Marieda Di Stefano (1901-1968) as well being husband and wife also shared a passion for modern Italian art and became avid collectors. Their collection containing a total of 2,000 pieces was donated to the City of Milan in 1974.
The collection on display comprises paintings, sculptures and drawings with pieces dating from the first decade of the 20th century up to the late 1960s, organised chronologically by room. It includes works by Severini, Boccioni, Funi, Marussig, Tozzi, Carrà, Casorati, Sironi, Martini and Morandi.
The house museum is located in a small block of apartments from the 1930s by the architect Piero Portaluppi. The interiors, restored by the City of Milan, were fitted and furnished by the Boschi Di Stefano Foundation, established in 1998.
