Palazzo Visconti Brignano

Description

Palazzo Vecchio is a building from the end of the sixteenth century, created on pre-existing fortified walls. Recently restored, the ground floor hosts the municipal offices.

The “noble” floor offers numerous frescoed rooms, making it one of the most successful Baroque works in Lombardy.
The delegatory area includes frescoes dedicated to dynastic splendour, in particular the so-called Throne Room, from 1675, where the most illustrious exhibits of the Visconti family stand out in the form of monochrome painted statues.

 


The “Sala dell’Innominato” was once the family’s art gallery, while the smaller rooms have fresco decor only in the upper part, adjacent to the wooden coffer ceilings, with allegorical and mythological scenes.

The elegant, eighteenth-century staircase is entirely covered in frescoes with scenes dedicated to the adventures of Hercules, with allegorical female figures and illusionistic architectural quadratures, while the culmination of the Visconti dynasty dominates the ceiling with the gods of Olympus.
