6 Via San Sisto Milano Lombardia 20123 IT

This is a very original type of museum: it displays the works of the sculptor Francesco Messina. It is something new on the order of museums because here we find a museum-studio where Messina exhibits but also works, produces, creates, plans and lives his intense life as an artist.

Francesco Messina reigns in “his” museum-studio located in one of the picturesque central districts where the city of Milan is most full of tradition. An adherent to the school of Realism, here he has become one of the most famous sculptors About eighty of his works are displayed in the former San Sisto Church.
