Top ways to experience Museo Pietà Rondanini and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

Enclosed in a small gallery in Castel Sforzesco, you will find one of the last works of Michelangelo. This unfinished Pieta is displayed simply in the middle of the room, so that you can walk around it and appreciate it from all angles. Having viewed the artist's work in the Vatican, this piece provides a glimpse of his process. Very fulfilling experience.

The "Pietà Rondanini" is the last sculpture by Michelangelo. He worked at this statue for the last 10 years of his life, when he was in his eighties. The death of the artist came before he could finish the statue, and the style is totally different from the earlier Pietà now in St. Peter Basilica in Rome.

The Pietà Rondanini was bought by the City of Milano in 1952, and at the beginning it was included in the Ancient Art collection of the Sforza Castle. Since 2015 it has a separate space in the Spanish Hospital of the castle.

There is a single ticket, allowing entrance to the Pietà museum, and to all other museums in the Sforza Castle.

This statue seems to be a big deal here. But it’s not close to being a finished work. And it looks like something that was stopped because it wasn’t turning out correctly. Not all that impressive.

This is one of the Civic Museums housed in the Castle Sforzesco and merits mention apart because of the high quality of Michael Angelo´s Pietat and the wonderful way in which it is exhibited. The room which houses the piece contains remains of wall decoration and is peaceful and spacious. Side chapels house some related exhibits.

Michelangelo's late Pieta is awesome. When you got the chance to get there without any crowds you can enjoy the calmness of the room and the amazing art. We were lucky. Only two people were there. When we left 40 school children came in. We were there right on time I assume

I visited the Museo Pieta Rondanini in December 2019. The main attraction here is Michaelangelo's Rondanini Pieta. It was not crowded here since I got here early on a Sunday morning. I recommend starting your visit to Castello Sforzesco here because the ticket also covers the main museum. It will save you time from having to wait in line to buy a ticket to the main museum and then having to wait in another line to enter the main museum.

There was a short wait of about 10 minutes to enter and security was strict with bags searched. Michelangelo’s Rondanini Pietà holds centre stage in the middle of the one room museum, but there are also a few small exhibits. It's a photo opportunity and a case of, been there, done that. The main museum in the castle is far more interesting.

This museum only had one item - it was the unfinished last work of Michelangelo, which is interesting. Maybe I'm just not a big enough fan?

The line was long but worth it in the end to see such masterpiece. The whole museum was worth visiting as well.

Stopping in here for the sculpture only takes 5 minutes, there is much more to see in the rest of the castle. Dont pay for the admission and only see this. Make sure you visit this sculpture early on, it may close before other exhibits in the castle. It wasnt crowded, but people were still cut off right when they entered when it was time to close. It stands alone in the room and they were still not allowed to take a look.
