The Giureconsulti Palace, also known as Palazzo Affari ai Giureconsulti or simply Palazzo Affari, is a 16th-century building of Milan, Italy. It is located in Piazza Mercanti, former city centre in the Middle Ages.The construction of the palace began in 1562 on a design by architect Vincenzo Seregni. The palace replaced an older one, which was demolished. The overall style of the building and its decoration is Manneristic.A pre-existing tower by Napo Torriani was preserved and adapted to the new architecture as a bell tower; the bell, which was nicknamed "Zavataria" after Zavatario della Strada who donated it, rang to announce such events as public executions. The bell was later replaced by a clock.The building originally served as the seat of the Collegio dei Nobili Dottori, a school for aspiring politicians and lawyers. After the 18th century it was used for other functions, including as a stock exchange, as the seat of the telegraph company, as the seat of the Popolare di Milano bank, and finally as the seat of the Chamber of Commerce . Today, the building is still the property of the Chamber of Commerce.

  • Always valid and interesting exhibitions and cultural initiatives, beyond the specific subject matter, are also an excellent opportunity to discover this prestigious building from the illustrious history. Very thick and recall for sure the exhibition taking place in the Chamber of Notaries (Lombardy Wine Experience, December 1-30), dedicated to one hundred prestigious labels in Lombardy, including the exquisite and little-known Saint Columba, sole milanese territory wine. This is culture.

  • In the gem that is square merchants, this beautiful 16th-century palace built by Pope Pius IV as city management guidelines. Bella la torre Napo Torriani, which once housed a Bell that sounded serious adverse events, death sentences while today allocates a nice watch. An elegant Renaissance palace which is well worth a visit.
