This palace currently plays host to Milan's town hall, but it was once the home of a rich Genoese merchant who commissioned the building, and whom the palace is named after. The palace was built between 1553 and 1558, but underwent extensive restoration after damage during World War 2. Apart from the town's governors, the palace contains a courtyard stacked with monuments, an entrance hall filled with artwork from new artists, along with an exclusive restaurant, and more accessible cafe.

Address: Piazza della Scala
Directions: On exiting the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele it is immediately on your right.
