Piazza Cordusio is a square in central Milan, Italy. The piazza takes its name from the Cors Ducis which was found in the square during Longobard times. It is well known for its several turn-of-the-19th-century Neoclassical, eclectic and Art Nouveau buildings, banks and post offices. Even though many of these have now relocated elsewhere, it is still an important commercial square in the city and hosts the Palazzo delle Assicurazioni Generali, the Palazzo del Credito Italiano and the Palazzo delle Poste, former Borsa di Milano . Piazzale Cordusio hosts the Cordusio metro station and is the starting point of the elegant pedestrian Via Dante which leads to the imposing medieval Castello Sforzesco, or Milan Castle. Opposite to Via Dante, Cordusio borders onto Piazza Mercanti, former city centre in the Middle Ages, which leads directly to Piazza del Duomo, today's city centre.PalacesPalazzo delle Assicurazioni GeneraliThis palace is the main one in the square, and was built by architect Luca Beltrami from 1897 to 1901. It is the main headquarter of the mega-finance corporation Assicurazioni Generali. It has a small tower with a dome.Palazzo del Credito ItalianoThe palace of the Credito Italiano, which is a semi-circular eclectic building, designed by Luigi Broggi.

    Every Sunday morning, ceased the hectic traffic on weekdays, Piazza Cordusio comes alive in a different and more content thanks to the appointment, a must-have for many enthusiasts, with its picturesque market of Philately and numismatics. From the corner with Via Cordusio and along adjacent streets (especially Armorari, Central passage and Cesare Cantù) dozens and dozens of stalls displaying stamps, coins, medals, badges, old postcards, Liebig, comics, books out Edition, plus a host of antiques and modern art, and much more. The exhibitors are all licensed and fitted with an identification tag. Connoisseurs or merely curious, are always many visitors of this traditional market, born way back in 1938 and since then back on time every Sunday from 8 to 13. If you are in the neighborhood is definitely worth going to look around and maybe attend some colourful discussion among specialists or finally find something you were looking for for a long time.
