“Don't forget to look at the beautiful perspective”

Casa di Alessandro Manzoni
Reviewed 28 October 2015

The house itself is an important site. What I found most fascinating about it is that it totally reflects the character of Alessandro Manzoni. Rooms (including his bedroom) are plain, clean, rigorous almost. Except for the bedroom the other rooms are decorated with paintings and portraits of the artist and of the key chapters of its "Promessi Sposi". When leaving the house make sure you spend a little time admiring the beautiful architecture of pIazzetta Belgioioso; the perspective is great from Mr Manzoni's front door!

Unfortunately, the palace was not open to the public due to some minor renovations.
Having peeked inside, it seems most of the exhibits from the museum were either covered or stored away somewhere else.
Having said that, the façade of the building looks nice and will look even better when the building's facelift is completed.

The Casa is right near the end of the the Galleria Vittorio. If you are in luck you can tour through the house which housed Italy's most famous author. Just in front of the very pretty façade is a great statue of the author.

Lovely building but you need to go on a waking tour to find out about it( if you can't go in) so that you can fully appreciate the beauty of the building. It's looks amazing and the detail is breathtaking.

Anyone (that visit Milan or pass for a short trip) must leave this city without visit the home of one of the major Milan habitant in the word (however the origin of his parents wasn't in Milan). The home of Manzoni is maintained and cared until the begin of XX century from a sort of Manzoni foundation. Of course it's not all original like manzoni lived his home in 1878 ( when he died, and you can see his bedroom) but overall if you close your eyes for a moment you could feel easily the spirit of the poet.
-positive points: a permanent exibition of some things (books, handwritten sheets, clothes etc.) belonged to the poet that increase the spirit of the home, his beedroom and his library like he as if it were still in the house
negative points: too short time of opening.
