Arengario, Monza

#10 of 80 in Things to do in Monza
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 gallery

  • On an evening the queues for this place are crazy. But the gelato is worth the wait! They do lots of interesting things like frozen yoghurt with toppings and brioche ice cream sandwiches but the gelato is the star of the show! Very reasonably priced too! A small is big enough for anyone with generous portion sizes!
  • well-known ice cream parlor good ice cream, Because not only do you want a product that's quality, with the freshest ingredients, you likes what you stand for.
  • Long line on saturday evening, but really worth it. We got 2 biscuits filled with ice cream and wanted another round :)
  • Good quality gelato
  • One of the best ice cream in town.
