    Returned to Museum Messina and I found a different Museum! In the background, a canvas of 80 square meters of the painter Domenico Fazzari closes the prospect of the former Church. On the ground floor there is a group of women on the right and virile heads left. In the former residence of the artist met the famous horses and study in the attic all ballerinas. This grouping of works the exploits and I was really excited. The Council also visit who's already been in the past.

    Milan is so, has many beautiful things but not the view. This small museum situated in Via San Sisto, al Carrobbio is a confirmation. Located in a former Church, San Sisto, bombed during World War II, granted in use to the sculptor Francesco Messina who took care of the restoration and made it his own atelier and study, returned to the city of Milan after the sculptor's death. Dozens of works by the master are exhibited including portraits of dancers, portraits of famous people, two busts of Cardinal Ildefonso Schuster, Archbishop of Milan from 1929 to 1954, and the famous horses. These small sculptures are a series of sketches prepared by Messina as studies for famous horse of RAI, which is at the entrance of the venue of Giulietta's House in Rome. All very nice and interesting. They are also often hosted temporary exhibitions of contemporary artists that harmonize with the environment of the Museum. Deserves so definitely a sight, but if you can more than one guest at each setting.

    At the end of via Torino, near the Carrobbio is situated in via san Sisto 4 a Deconsecrated Church, ... San Sisto, built in the 17th century. The Church was damaged after the second world war. It was bought (Deconsecrated) and used by the sculptor Francesco Messina as their own studio which he left at his death to the commune along with many works to be exhibited now, in three floors of the former Church are exposed 26 80 sculptures and works on paper. It is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 to 18 with free admission. It is one of the jewels of Milan!

  • A beautiful exhibition showing not only the works but also the workspace of Messina upstairs in the church, which I believe was the most fascinating part of it. It was a great surprise for me that you can enter free of charge to such a high-level showroom.
  • in the middle of the shopping area you can find this amazing house-museum. an old churc turned in a francesco messina's studio. and by the way... it is totally free thanks to the volunteers of touring club.
  • amazing sculptures of famous people
  • Absolutely worth visiting. It would be useful to better describe the works. So much potential, not fully exploited
