The Poldi Pezzoli is part of some Museums Networks as the Milanese House-museums Networks and the Collector Museums Network.
The Network has the aim to promote the Milanese cultural and artistic heritage thanks to some of its leading figures: the noblemen Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli and the brothers Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi in the 19th century, Antonio Boschi and Marieda di Stefano, Gigina Necchi and Angelo Campiglio in the 20th century.
Collector Museums Network
Thanks to the generosity of many collectors, some European cities have now important museums allowing residents and visitors to enjoy the items these men and women had collected with passion throughout their lives. Antonis Benaki, William Burrell, Calouste Gulbenkian, Frederic Marès and Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli shared a passion for collecting as well as an educational purpose, so that at the end of their lives they cared about the future of their collections. The Benaki Museum in Athens, the Burrell Collection in Glasgow, the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum in Lisbon, the Museu Frederic Marès in Barcelona and the Poldi Pezzoli Museum in Milan have decided to honour the men that created them by working together on projects focusing on the figure of the collector. The results of the collaboration between these institutions will be conferences, exhibitions and/or publications.
