  • After visiting the Archeological Museum we headed in via Brisa, a few hundred meters away, to visit what remains (mostly foundations) of the great Roman imperial palace in Milan. It was built in the time of Maximian, when made of Mediolanum's own capital of the Western Roman Empire. At the end of the 3rd century AD, then, Milan officially becomes one of the capitals of the Roman Empire until 402 ad, the year of the transfer of the Court at Ravenna. As capital the city assumed the role of administrative, military and judicial personnel; It was then expanded the city walls, were constructed new buildings and the whole complex was subject to a significant restorative intervention. The Imperial Palace is designed as a multifunctional complex, separate from the city, equipped with all the necessary facilities to the Imperial Court, such as spas, places of worship, military, administrative and residential structures. Therefore, we can speak of a real neighborhood, and the building of via Brisa is just one of many sectors. A thanks to explanatory tables present on site that illustrate clearly that "little" that our eyes are now able to see. Well worth a visit.

  • In Milan, as in any ancient city very much not preserved palaces, buildings, fortresses from which ruins were left alone. On Via Brisa is one such, Imperial Palace (Emperor's Palace of Milan), from which only the Foundation remained. That keep these ancient ruins? Always very interesting to see such places.
