The Italian Renaissance art and decorative arts collections of the barons Bagatti Valsecchi are displayed in their home, as they wished them to be.

The collection of this museum consists in paintings, statues and printings; some of the adjacent ambient have been refurnished as they were in the 18th century with the purpose to recreate the sophisticated atmosphere of those times.

It was one of the most important city gate, a double fornix’s gate with two lateral structures towards the side that once time, was outside the walls gate of Milan. It is still possible to see the ancient grooves that hosted the shutter; the pedestrians passages were built in 1861.

Palazzo Borromeo d’Adda - Borromeo d'Adda Palace
One of the most important and still preserved which appeared on the exclusive “contrada” of the garden. Built between the XVII and the XVIII centuries this palace is characterized by the wide gardens recently restored.

Church of San Francesco di Paola
The church, which was once annexed to the convent of the Minor Fathers, was built by Marco Bianchi beginning from 1728, completed only in 1891 by architect Emilio Alemagna who gave it a typically late Baroque curvilinear style and plastic decoration. On the inside, the monumental main alter in polychrome marble is noteworthy (1749-53).

Casa del Manzoni - Manzoni’s House
Alessandro Manzoni (1785-1873) wrote “The Fiancés”, a "grand epic about the humble", thus renewing the genre of the historical novel. For 60 years he lived in this opulent-looking home that contains his library, his office, a variety of items that refer to his life and his work, and the original furniture of the room in which he died. Next to the House/Museum, the National Centre for Manzonian Studies gives the general public and researchers access to a well stocked specialist library of books about and by Manzoni with about 24,000 volumes.

Palazzo Belgioiosa - Belgioioso's Palace
Palazzo Belgioioso was designed by Piermarini in the second half of the 18th century for Prince Alberico di Belgioioso d'Este and is considered one of the best examples of neoclassical architecture in Milan. The Palazzo has a richly gilded monumental staircase and was designed around one main and two secondary courtyards. The facade is particularly interesting, with a giant order of half columns and pilaster strips above a rusticated ashlar ground floor, and terminating in a large cornice and gable. The entrance is heightened by the projecting central volume. The coherence of the design extends to the interior decoration and furnishings, also designed by Piermarini. Feature of interest: On the first floor there is a chapel with lobate central plan, and a powder-room, also central-plan.

Casa degli Omenoni - Omenoni's House
A short walk from Piazza della Scala, eight characters stand out: They are the eight giants, also called "omenoni" sculptured by Antonio Abondio. They decorate the façade of the palazzetto of Leone Leoni, who was the sculptor for Carlo V and Filippo II: the artist built the premises as his own private home around 1565 when he settled in Milan after an adventurous life which took him from kings courts to prison, as well. The building maintains the typical form seen in the late 16th century, and the elegant main floor contrasts with the ground floor, where the caryatids support columns stand out. Inside, there is a charming courtyard with columns. Private dwelling.

Church of San Fedele
San Fedele is a Jesuit church entitled to St. Fidelis of Como, patron of the Catholic diocese of Como. Located in the centre of Milan, near the Marino Palace, the La Scala theatre and the Vittorio Emanuele II Arcade; the church was commissioned by Carlo Borromeo to Pellegrino Tibaldi (1559).The interior is on a single nave, with tall columns in granite. The presbytery was prolonged in the 17th century by Francesco Maria Richini, who also designed the notable sacristy. Main artworks include a Pietà by Simone Peterzano, the “St. Ignatius” by Giovanni Battista Crespi and a “Transfiguration” by Lucio Fontana. The “Madonna of the Snake” by Ambrogio Figino is now in the church of Sant'Antonio Abate of the city.
