Large and nice palace built in 1887 on the soil of the Lazaret mentioned in the Promessi Sposi by Alessandro Manzoni . Inside the portico several medallions and busts are inspirate to that famous... more »
Interesting architecturally, but also curious about A massive and imposing building on the corner of piazzale Oberdan and Corso Buenos Aires (in the 19th century it was called "Stradone di Loreto"), built between 1881 and 1887 by master builder Angel Galimberti on project and on behalf of the engineer architect Ferdinando Luraschi, who had acquired part of the Lazaret just demolished. A building of six floors above ground, which caused some discontent because she had broken the "bondage of the Resegone" requiring that the houses built in the northern part of Milan fail to overcome the three planes not to block the view of the Alps and – especially – del monte Resegone, immortalized by Alessandro Manzoni. A Palace, the first in Milan (and one of the first in Italy) built of reinforced concrete, with a rich, eclectic style façade: on the ground floor and mezzanine floor a decorative raised panels (with stone blocks placed in tiers) that is repeated in the the Central Palace; a monumental portal to serliana surmounted by entablatures, balconies on the first floor balcony, balconies, supported by Windows surrounded by bands and topped with triangular or curvilinear Gables, a long sash (soffit) of terracotta decorations, nice carved wooden door. A building that respects the milanese tradition because it has within it a nice arcaded courtyard, with terracotta decorations: to build it were used some columns saved from demolition of the Lazzaretto (4, apparently in Baveno granite); and in it, between the arches, perhaps to make peace with Manzoni! – were medallions with busts of the characters of I Promessi Sposi.
Beautiful historical building very interesting from an architectural point of view, location
