  Palazzo Reale
by croisbeauty

The Royal Palace, known as Old Town Hall, was the Milan city hall starting from 1138, although its present appearance is in the neo-Classical style due to a transformation during the 18th century. The Palace became residence of the Visconti family in 1310 and the seat of the Visconti's Ducal Court. In the following centuries lots of modifications were made on it as a result of the transformations commissioned by its various owners, such as Sforzas, the Spanish governor and Archduke Ferdinand of Austria.
During the WWII, the interior of the palace was completely devastated by the 1943 bombardments.
Nowadays the palace houses the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Cathedral Museum which is situated in the left wing of the palace.
