Risorgimento museum Milan
The Risorgimento Museum Milan is located in ancient Palazzo Moriggia in the area of Brera, the collections include works and antiques from the Napoleonic period to the annexation of Rome by the Kingdom of Italy, a specialised library and a key historical archive. The Risorgimento Museum Milan was created with a group of documents and artifacts of the Risorgimento. With Palazzo Morando, it contains the Historical Collections of the Milan’s City, which are intended for educational and cultural purposes.
The Museum is part of the Civic Historical Collections. Its collections include Baldassare Verazzi’s Episode from the Five Days and Francesco Hayez’s 1840 Portrait of Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria. The permanent exhibition is displayed to follow the chronological order of events of the Risorgimento, leading the visitor through fifteen rooms, to which the new Weapons Room has been recently added. The latest refurbishment in 1998 included the redesign of the permanent exhibitions, to accentuate the highlights of the collections, particularly the relics.
The Museum boasts the green and silver velvet cloak and the valuable regal insignia of Napoleon Bonaparte’s coronation, the banner of the Legione Lombarda Cacciatori a Cavallo (Lombard Legion on Horseback) and the first Italian flag. The last renovation saw the redesign of the lighting and information systems, as well as improvements to the ‘Romantic Garden’ behind the building.
