At the time, the square was larger than it is now and known as "Piazza del Broletto", after the "Broletto Nuovo", the palace that occupied the centre of the square .

  • So many historical architecture in Milan. It's is very interesting to see this one so close to the Doumo...... 
  • Next to the square of the Duomo, a curious building oriothetei on one side of the square Mercanti. The other 3 sided forth from the Palazzo della Ragione, the Casa Panigarola and Loggia degli Osii. On the ground floor of the building chalkines middle with the names of citizens victims fasismoy.

  • Reaching Piazza Marcanti with just a few steps from the Duomo. The houses surrounding the square exude medieval atmosphere so that the mood changes very quickly and in amazing ways in contrast to the lively Cathedral square.
