Arengario, Monza

4.0
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

  • Beautiful color, almost reddish brown. I recommend the colorblind, as would jump right out at you. Very warm traffickers that doesn't belie ever, every two to three they ask if you want more. To conclude ... Rich, I shove.

  • Place the center of the city, a historical piece still in vogue in substantial and increasingly impressive modernity Monza. Construction milestone, now fixed, of art exhibitions and more, all, or almost all, United by the beauty and scaffolding designed to "art" rule. A symbol, a historic and artistic institution.
