The Palazzo Moroni Museum Foundation was founded in 2009 at the behest of Count and engineer Antonio Moroni who wanted to make his home the site of a body that promotes initiatives of collective interest for the diffusion, enhancement and study of the arts in their different expressive forms.
The mansion built by the same Moroni family between 1636 and 1666 has a very extensive and sober facade, in stark contrast to the baroque impact given by G.G. Barbelli, who painted the frescoes that decorate most of the rooms and from whose subjects take their names: the Rooms of the Golden Age, the Giants, the Apotheosis of Hercules and finally of Jerusalem Delivered.
In the 1800s, the entire state floor was remodelled, and several rooms underwent a radical transformation with tapestries, frescoes and decorations showing the taste and lifestyle of the 19th century to perfection.
The dwelling has maintained its unique quality of being an inhabited home and is therefore completely furnished and its excellence can undoubtedly be ascribed to the collection of paintings, in particular of Lombard origin, featuring masterpieces by GB Moroni, Bernardino Luini, Gimbettino Cignaroli and Cesare Tallone.
