  • This palace was built in XX century, so it's not so historical. Although the building itself is quite organic. "Mezzanotte" stands for Paolo Mezzanotte, the architect who designed it.  more »
  • Back the second time to a Congress, always strikes for its Majesty and symbolism. Interesting Roman remains visible beneath a glass floor downstairs where a buffet.

  • Impressive Palace, one of the best known examples of fascist architecture in the city. Monumental façade in travertine crossed by four huge semi columns that are populated with statues and reliefs with allegorical references to economic wealth. Inside, the most important room is the great Hall of the cries, place where you performed the negotiations "on call". A large square covered lit from above through a large engraved glass curtain depicting the sky and its constellations (created from designs of Gio Ponti by renowned glassmaker d'Arte ticinese Peter Church). Unfortunately with modernization of the canopy room you may just catch a glimpse. In fact, with the advent of computer reservation systems the stock exchange has lost its original function of place of business and the interior spaces have been converted into a Conference Center. In the basement, below a glass floor, you can admire the remains of a Roman Theatre unearthed during the construction of the Palace (1927). The same environment is decorated with artistic majolica by Gio Ponti and manufactured by Richard Ginori. On the square, right in front of the building, there is a giant marble sculpture by Maurizio Cattelan: L.O.V.E. (short for freedom, hatred, revenge, eternity), commonly known as "the finger". Eleven meters of provocation and irreverence. Very witty. Open only during the day.

  • 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.

  • The historical seat of the Italian Stock Exchange, is in a quiet square side. In recent years attracts more visitors to the statue of the "finger" of Cattelan positioned in the square outside. It is possible to visit the ruins of the ancient Roman theater below the Palace.
