Palazzo Mezzanotte, also known as Palazzo delle Borse is a 20th-century building of Milan, Italy, and the seat of the Italian stock exchange. It is located in Piazza Affari, the city square after which the Italian stock exchange itself is nicknamed. The name "Palazzo Mezzanotte" is a reference to Paolo Mezzanotte, the architect who designed the building.HistoryThe original stock exchange of Milan was established in 1808 in the seat of the Mount of piety of the city. The following year it was moved to the Palazzo dei Giureconsulti, in Piazza Mercanti, and at the beginning of the 20th century it was relocated again in a newly constructed building in Piazza Cordusio; this building now houses the headquarters of the Poste Italiane postal service, and has thus been renamed Palazzo della Posta ("Post Palace").In 1925, the city authorities of Milan launched a project for a new, larger building for the stocks exchange. Architect Paolo Mezzanotte began his design in 1927, and construction works began in 1929. The ruins of a Roman theatre were discovered during the excavations, and this delayed the construction. A plaque showing the map of those ruins is now affixed on one of the outer walls of the palace.The building was completed in 1932. At its inauguration, it qualified as the most technologically advanced building in Italy; it was the first building to implement a single call button controlling several elevators, it had air conditioning, and housed the largest electric display of the times (in Italy) where stock quotations where updated in real time.

  • With the money you do everything, maybe it's not true, but many think; the matter of this Palace has absorbed the anxieties of skilled players and poor deluded, and seems to keep them with the power of its structures and its colonnades. Nice building in a nice area of Milan.

  • Very stylish this palazzone nestled in the beautiful historical centre of Milan, a particular classic, austere, with an external severity disbanded by funny statues. Less fun is the severed hand with fingers full of unintended meanings conceived by an artist whose name I can't remember.

  • Nice place for meeting and exposition.
  • It's worth visiting, exceptionally beautiful, especially at night. Functions mainly as congress center but it was also interesting to hear its historical development from 1932 until today.
  • no
  • Milan's financial center symbol structure. Impressive façade and spacious lounge Interior visited during a Conference.

  • Conference Room great from the standpoint of visibility and acoustics; however modest environment from an aesthetic point of view and with poor usability with regard to accessibility; presence of stairs to get to the environments where they are dispensed refreshments which are located on two floors
