One of the main squares in Milan, Piazza Cordusio is located at half way from the Duomo to Castello Sforzesco, in an active business area.

Once the center of Milan's financial life (the Milan Stock Exchange was located here before being moved to Piazza degli Affari) Piazza Cordusio is still playing an important role: here is the beautiful Palazzo delle Assicurazioni Generali, but also the headquarters of Unicredito Italiano, one of the most important Italian banks (and between others, the reason of my visit to Milan).

The name of the square derivates from Curia Ducis (meaning Corte del Duca or Palazzo del Duca), the place where the Milanese Dukes established their court.
