<title> SUMMARY </title>The project for the Brera Observatory, Milan, Italy, was started, from 1764, by R. Boscovich who sketched out the duties of the astronomers in a ' Piano per la Specola di Brera ', which was an ambitious project for the carrying out a new theoretical and observational astronomy.The Archives of the Observatory, which go from about 1760 to about 1950, have been put in order and have been transferred to rooms suitable for the custody of the documents and the consultation of them.Three main parts constitute the Archives: a) Scientific Correspondence, b) Administrative Archives, c) Astronomers's Material Collections. There are, moreover, a cartographic section and a section of photographic plates and photographs. In this paper the history of the events which determined the present-day configuration is described. A description of the consistency of the Archives is included.
