Manzoni was in the 19t.th century a very famous writer. Here in this house he lived until his death. You can also visit the small museum dedicated to him and his works.

The small palace was the residence of the famous Italian poet and writer, Alessandro Manzoni, and his family from 1813 until his death in 1873. His texts and manuscripts are today conserved in the Casa Museo Manzoni in this house.

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...More

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...More

recently re-opened to the public in a quiet corner of downtown, this is the city home of one of the foremost authors in 19th century italian literature; the facade (see photo) opens onto a small square, mercifully off-limits to most vehicular traffic and parking. Unfortunately...More

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...More

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...More

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.
