  • Beautiful palace located in Piazza del Monte and was in antiquity the seat of the Captain of the People. Apart from the descriptive plaque on the door you can recognize it at a glance thanks to the beautiful blackbirds that adorn the top of the building. Recommended

  • Being alongside one of the city's rulers, the city's medieval commander was a kind of military commander who maintained order and led defense, if this need arose. This number was elected to the post for no more than six months, and the candidate had to be a stranger in the city. At the same time, he was not allowed to own any property in the city, so the city allocated a palace for the captains living next to the mayor's residence. The elegant building later, when the city became under the influence of the Dukes of Sforza, attracted their attention, so it took almost a simple transformation to turn the palace into a luxury residence.
