Museo Martinitt e Stelline


Good To Know

The Martinitt and Stelline Museum tells the moving story of Milan’s orphans and how they were looked after by the city throughout the past centuries. The use of multimedia allows the vistor to interact and brings the fascinating story to life.

The name of the museum refers to the orphanages for boys (Martinitt) and for girls (Stelline), both founded in the 16th century.  The building itself is located next to the Palazzo Stelline, the former girls orphanage.

The museum is run by the Pio Albergo Trivulzio institute, which still today looks after orphans and other citizens in need of help. It also houses an archive and library where all the documentation related to the orphanages are accessible to the public.
