Luciano Minguzzi Museum Foundation, Milan
The museum houses the major works of Luciano Minguzzi, a Bolognese artist who carried out a vast part of his work in Milan since the 1950s.
The Museum is located in a fully restructured seventeenth-century building that was once used as an icehouse, and is now a modern exhibition space on four levels.
Luciano Minguzzi was above all a sculptor and the collection primarily consists of examples of his plastic art.
In addition to his many sculptures, the artist is also remembered for having created the Quinta Porta (Fifth Door) of the Cathedral of Milan and the Porta del Bene e del Male (Door of Good and Evil) of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican City, for which sketches and scale models are exhibited.
In addition to the permanent exhibition, the Luciano Minguzzi Museum is often a venue for various types of artistic events and displays.
