The Milano Clock Tower is located in Via Mercanti, alomost overlooking Piazza del Duomo. It is better known as Torre del Commune and is situated on the top of Palazzo dei Giureconsulti, home of the chamber of commerce. Torre del Commune was built here in 1272 by Napo Torriani who ruled over Milano until he was defeated by Ottone Visconti in 1277. This event heralded an era of rule by the powerful Visconti family over Milano, which would last until the mid 15th century.
