The Bagatti Valsecchi Museum (also known as cnosciuto BaVa Museum) is a historic home located in the heart of the Montenapoleone, in the Centre of Milan, in the Palace named "Palazzo Bagatti Valsecchi", bought by Regione Lombardia in 1975.

Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi, Varedo, conceived together with the project to build a dwelling in which living inspired by the stately homes of Four and five hundred lombardo and art objects or enrich Renaissance. For this purpose the milanese Palace was extended by family (current site of the Museum) at the end of the 19th century.
The uniqueness of the Bagatti Valsecchi brothers project was to create a collection (in German, a "Gesamtwerk") absolutely harmonious, where the building, fixed decorations and valuable art objects collected passionately contribute equally to the fidelity of the Renaissance setting still indispensable collections (including, for example, works by Giovanni Bellini, Gentile Bellini, Giampietrino and Lorenzo di Niccolò).
Nineteenth-century culture that is reflected in the home of Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi was committed to seek inspiration in the past for its artistic manifestations. The two brothers however, departing from the road more, combined ideas drawn not from different epochs. Rather than toward eclecticism, indirizzarono their preferences to suggestions and Renaissance objects (see Neorinascimento), in line with the rest of the cultural programme launched by the young Savoy monarchy in the aftermath of the unification of Italy.
The Bagatti Valsecchi Museum, open to the public since 1994, is a House-Museum of the most important and best preserved in Europe.
