Piazza Cordusio, Milan

(3/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Close to piazza Duomo towards Piazza Castello Sforzesco is one of the most famous Metro stations. There are some beautiful buildings of the late ' 800 including one where there are located the Assicurazioni Generali.
