The Arengario is a historic building in Monza, northern Italy. It was built in the 13th century and is named after its original function as the town's "arengario" (i.e., town hall). It is located in the most central square of Monza, Piazza Roma.Its architecture is clearly inspired by that of the Palazzo della Ragione of Milan, with a portico surmounted by a single upper floor that was used for councils. The side of the building facing South has a small stone loggia (added to the main building in 1330) informally known as "la Parléra" (in Lombard, "the speaking place"), where the commune's decrees were declaimed to the population. In the 14th century, a bell tower was added, decorated with Ghibelline-styled merlons. In the original building, external stairs led to the upper floor; these have been replaced in 1904 with a new stairway inside the tower.Photo galleryFor travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Monza holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Arengario and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

A well preserved historical place in the center of Monza
Mina EpifaniIt's a historic building dating back to 1200/1300, really very beautiful and well maintained. Easy to get to walking in the Centre of Monza. Often hosts temporary exhibitions. To see absolutely. But should treat some more interiors and installations of the exhibitions it hosts, I have to say is not always well organized. The captions of the works, to the position of works to frames, glass and lighting. We have beautiful spaces and competent people able to organize an exhibition, let's make them properly. While the guys who frequent the place, I respect him a little more and go for a ride around a few bars or pubs which are perhaps more in line with their needs.show original
