On a cold Sunday afternoon, we stopped by chance. And we were lucky. A guided tour was available for a small group of visitors in Italian, we went for it. It was worth it. The property is beautiful, you can smell a piece of Milanese history, and Alessandro Manzoni lived his time quite fully. He was making history with other writers, thinkers of his time. He left a mark in time. His house is a testimony of his intellect, knowledge, love for literature. The guide was very well prepared, and was able to pass on his story telling passionately. really worth it.

International visitors to Milan may not know who Manzoni was but this is a great place to visit. Manzoni was the Shakespeare of Italy and lived in the 19th century. The house is large and beautiful. It is very close to La Scala.

Well, the renovations of this lovely building are finally finished, but unfortunately, due to Christmas and New Year's, the place was closed shut with no notices of the opening hours.
Rather disappointing, but at least peeking inside revealed the exhibits (or at least - some of them) are back.
