Historical Buildings of Milan

Itinerary description

Noble Milanese palazzi with facades of extraordinary beauty, the realms of influential families, can be admired throughout the stages of this itinerary which starts off from the extremely central location of Palazzo dei Giureconsulti, in Piazza Mercanti, and then continues to Palazzo Clerici, which boasts a fresco by Tiepolo, and then Palazzo Marino, the Milan municipal hall in Piazza della Scala. The latter is the only building in the city to border on four different streets and to be placed in four different architectural contexts.
Casa Omenoni with its impressive sculptures is close by and, in Piazza Belgioioso, stands the eponymous neoclassical Milanese palazzo.
Palazzo Bagatti Valsecchi in Via Santo Spirito is a fine example of a nineteenth-century palazzo inspired by the stately style of the early Renaissance and is now the premises of the eponymous house-museum. Then follows an overview of architectural styles: the seventeenth-century Palazzo del Senato in Via Senato, the neoclassical Palazzo Serbelloni in Corso Venezia and the first Art Nouveau building in Milan, Palazzo Castiglioni. The itinerary ends in Via Vivaio at the Palazzo Isimbardi, headquarters of the Province of Milan.
