The small palace was the residence of the famous Italian poet and writer, Alessandro Manzoni, and his family from 1813 until his death in 1873. His texts and manuscripts are today conserved in the Casa Museo Manzoni in this house.

International visitors to Milan may not know who Manzoni was but this is a great place to visit. Manzoni was the Shakespeare of Italy and lived in the 19th century. The house is large and beautiful. It is very close to La Scala.

The Casa is right near the end of the the Galleria Vittorio. If you are in luck you can tour through the house which housed Italy's most famous author. Just in front of the very pretty façade is a great statue of the author.

Lovely building but you need to go on a waking tour to find out about it( if you can't go in) so that you can fully appreciate the beauty of the building. It's looks amazing and the detail is breathtaking.

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon
