At the beginning of the 1970s, many villas, noble residences and monumental castles were handed over to public institutions by private owners. The Istituto per la Storia dell'Arte Lombarda went to the Region of Lombardy with the proposal of undertaking an inventory of 100 villas in municipal hands, divided by province, with the aim of furnishing the public institution that had become owner of a building with the necessary information for correctly converting its use. The programme, elaborated by Gian Battista Maderna, gave rise to a dossier responding to 292 questions concerning the period, location, present use, state of conservation, ancient and modern road axes, free surrounding areas, the presence of architectural and/or sculptural elements or fresco decoration on the inside, collections, period libraries or historical archives; proposals for restoration and consequent conversions of use followed. For several monuments, more in-depth studies were then carried out, including a historical-artistic report, a photographic campaign guided by an art historian, an economic report related to the land on which the property exists and consequent proposals for the conversion of its use. This research was delivered to the Assessorato alla Cultura della Regione Lombardia so that it could see to distributing the relative dossiers to individual towns, some of which in these 35 years have proceeded with converting the use of the building, taking into account the data furnished by ISAL. Among these, the author notes the Palazzo Arese Jacini in Cesano Maderno and the Villa Ottolini Tosi in Busto Arsizio. For the first, she analyses the process carried out in converting the use of the building and now almost completely finished; for the second, she cites the update of a study carried out in the 1980s and consequent publication of a monograph which is in progress.
