MUST is a civic museum which narrates the history of the Vimercate area from the most ancient civilisations to the present. The museum collects, catalogues, conserves, and displays cultural relics - from archaeological finds to historical-artistic artefacts, from videos to oral traditions - in order to weave around these objects an evocative and scientifically valid narrative of the local history and its cultures. This narrative is the instrument by which complex contents, such as works of art and historical documentation, are translated into a language which is both popular and topical. The museum exhibition area is situated on two floors and in total there are 14 rooms: the ground floor is organised chronologically which starts with the Roman Ages to the 19th Century while the first floor follows a more thematic order concentrating on contemporary history. The Museum is housed in Villa Sottocasa, an important residential building characterised by an imposing main court surrounded by the double storey main and two lower side wings. It was rebuilt between the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century and it can be considered one of the most representative examples of Neo-classical architecture in Brianza.
