Palazzo Bovara

General information

Situated along the picturesque Corso Venezia, Palazzo Bovara, which was built in the second half of the eighteenth century by the architect Carlo Felice Soave, is a significant example of Lombard neoclassicism.

The building has a simple façade with three rows of windows, a central arched doorway flanked by Doric columns which support a balcony, plus, architectural and decorative elements in sandstone.

The palazzo was the seat of the French Embassy of the Cisalpine Republic and, in 1800, hosted the young Stendhal who arrived in the wake of Napoleon; it is named after the owner, Count Giovanni Bovara.

It currently houses the Circolo del Commercio and is used as a venue for important events.
