Villa Arconati

Villa Arconati is the evocative setting of an articulated program of events and initiatives in the historical, cultural, environmental and artistic field.

From Villa Arconati Festival - which since 1989 has established itself as one of the most prestigious events of summer in Milan - to theatrical events, open days with guided tours, workshops for children and initiatives for adults.

The villa also hosts events and exclusive activities organized by companies and individuals, which in this way intend to support its restoration and enhancement, thus becoming part of the Friends of Villa Arconati.

Thanks also to its strategic proximity to Fiera Milano Rho, the location is intended to accommodate significant events and to represent a point of reference in business tourism.


Augusto Rancilio Foundation opened for the first time Villa Arconati on a continuous basis in 2015: the open days allow you to visit - from May to October - the entire monumental garden and the halls of the palace, partly autonomously and partly with a guide of the Foundation.

During the months of public opening, Augusto Rancilio Foundation promotes and supports a series of activities aimed at supporting plastic arts, entertainment and live music.

Augusto Rancilio Foundation also offers the rent of some spaces for private events: from wedding reception to meetings, business events, gala dinners, private parties to video/photographic services.

The proceeds of all activities sponsored or hosted by Augusto Rancilio Foundation are entirely devolved to the recovery of Villa Arconati.
