  • Cute cottage in the city centre, built in 15 century. At the end of the 20 century, the building was renovated. Walk to the Duomo only takes 15 minutes, so you can admire even with limited stock time.

  • A small two-storey Renaissance mansion built in 15 century Casa Fontana Pirovano is located on the street Corso Venezia, 10, nearest metro station San Babila. A cozy patio, window on the façade could not fail to be of interest to fans of historic architecture.

  • After visiting Palazzo Castiglioni, heading towards San Babila here that you will find this old mansion. Intrigued, we headed to the "totem" explanatory place not far from the entrance, and we learn that the Palace was built in the 12th century, but its current appearance dates from the late 14th century and is a classic example of 15th century milanese. It is also called "the Guardian" because in the second half of the ' 400 lived a certain Angel Fountain, keeper of the adjacent Eastern Gate (demolished in the 19th century). Looking over the door we noticed the elegant wrought iron balustrade of the only balcony overlooking Corso Venezia, while in the soffit is visible, now severely emaciated, traces of painted decoration which clothed: a pattern of putti, merfolk current between the oculi of the façade. We tried to enter but were "kindly" invited to leave because the tours are done by reservation only and at certain times. We will definitely have to make a visit to the Interior of this former Palace; for what little we could see outside, it's amply worth!!!
