  • A 16th-century palace built in Manneristic style. It's been used in different functions through time. After WW2 it was restored. Have a look.  more »
  • There are so many beautiful things inside and outside of this building that boasts more than 500 years of history, but altogether it was a disappointment, because the different pieces – testimonials from different historical periods-were torn from their roots, mingled, combined – in my opinion-without respect to transform the building into something usable so remunerative (a Convention/event venue). You see a lot of things, but they don't understand the meaning: Roman remains (in the basement), the decumanus, because the area where the building was that of the Court; the City Hall Tower (the torre del Broletto Nuovo) raised by Napo Torriani in 1272, which later became the clock tower; Renaissance columns of the Palace built in 1562 by Vincenzo Seregni instructed noble milanese Giovanni Angelo Medici, to accommodate the College of nobles Doctors which is the Professional Association of experts on law and law of the time; neoclassical stuccoes and frescoes; staircase and Windows liberty; frescoes from the second world war; modern furnishings in the rooms created with restoration/renovation of the eighties/nineties of the twentieth century entrusted to architects Gianni midnight and Roberto Menghi. The fact of having been able to visit the Palace in total autonomy (within the MilanoMuseoCity initiative) has certainly helped me! Beautiful atrium with the emblem of the Universitas Mercatorum, the staircase with frescoed ceilings and the Windows (liberty?); interesting though not beautiful frescos (18th century) that decorate the ceilings of the staircase and halls on the first floor, the remains of the Roman decuman in vaulted basement room, the furniture of the Sala del Parlamentino, 1200 tower clock mechanism, but ... it's all untied or forcibly incorporated into a modern structure that can accommodate exhibitions and fashion shows , conferences, seminars and training courses, meetings and round tables, remote meetings (multifunctional and equipped with advanced technological systems will be also, but it's a bit cold aseptic). Depressing the exterior, overlooked and poorly-used: the steps to access the impressive arched portico are used for various bivouacs; the Mannerist façade does not shine for the cleaning and, overall, the Palace suffers, unfortunately, of neglect suffered by Piazza dei Mercanti and Palazzo della Ragione.

  • Beautiful on the outside - we didn't go in.
  • Lovely place at any season!
  • Amazing place
  • Historical building
  • Palazzo dei Giureconsulti in via Mercanti, along with the ancient buildings of piazza Mercanti makes this a unique part of the historical centre of Milan. The building of 1562, was intended to house the College of nobles doctors: Senators, judges and captains of Justice. For nearly six centuries-from the 13th to the 18th century-Milan had in this very square and in this way its reference centre for trade and municipal institutions. Very nice also internally where from rooms on the upper floors you can enjoy a wonderful view of piazza Duomo.

Where to stay in Milan
