  • Historical building of the fifteenth century arose in the area that housed in the Roman Forum, now Piazza San Sepolcro in Milan. The façade was restored in Baroque style in the 17th century, while the portal is the only survivor of the old façade. To the right of the door always of the fifteenth century there is a oval window closed with a double iron grille. The Palace is famous because Mussolini founded the Fasci di Combattimento in 1919 and those present at the first Assembly of the party were named "Sansepolcristi" from the name of the square. In 1937 next to the Palace was built by architect Piero Portaluppi, a 7-story tower with a balcony jutting at 1 St floor where il Duce kept the speeches, which took the name of Torre Littoria. Today the square is a park and the Palace is the seat of the State police and Carabinieri in the downtown area.

  • Overlook piazza san Sepolcro, United inextricably to a project of the 1930s, Brown Palace – built (or rebuilt) in ' 400, completed in the 16th century, rebuilt in the 18th century – and the Torre Littoria – built by Piero Parkes. One of the many architectural contrasts in Milan, where are inextricably merged so many centuries of history (not only) in Milan: the Palace belonged to a family ennobled by Bishop Ottone Visconti, who became Industrial Alliance headquarters it hosted the first meeting of the Fasci di Combattimento in 1919 and in 1937 became the property of the fascist Federation, which commissioned the project for the transformation of isolated Parkes (Watchtower was built on this occasion). Nice Renaissance portal of the Palace, flanked by stone pilasters d'angera and marble, with rounds of Roman emperors in the Spandrels; curious on façades, oval bottom right, the double railing; interesting the porticoed courtyard, which was completed in the 16th century, upstairs, by an open gallery (accessible only on special occasions, because the building is home to a local police station). Simple, but interesting the Tower, a marble slab, the top seven floors, with a protruding balcony on the first floor and a porch on the top (I wonder if you can visit the inside?).
