Palazzo dei Giureconsulti was commissioned by Angelo Maria Medici, the future Pope Pio IV, and was built between 1560 and 1564.

The College of Giureconsulti was the school where the highest men in the Milanese state were educated.

The statue of Philip II, which was supposed to remember to everyone the long domination of Spain, was replaced by a statue of Bruto, symbol of liberty.

This statue was destroyed by the Austrians in 1799 and today on that place is a statue of Sant'Ambrogio.

Address: Between Duomo and Cordusio
