The Villa was built between 1790 and 1796 for Count Ludovico Barbiano Belgiojoso. In fact, the villa is also known as Villa Belgiojoso. It was designed by Austrian architect Leopoldo Pollack, a collaborator of the highest representative of the Lombard Neoclassicism, Giuseppe Piermarini.
On the death of the count, the villa was purchased by the Cisalpine Republic government to transform it in the residence of Napoleon Bonaparte, who was to become president of the new Italian Republic, of which Milan was the capital. Since 1921 the villa hosts the Milan collections of modern art.
