Palazzo Morando

Overview

In the heart of the fashion district

Inhabited over the centuries by numerous families of the Milan aristocracy, Palazzo Morando is a historic building in the city of Milan. It is located in the heart of the “Quadrilatero della Moda” fashion district, on the very central Via Sant’Andrea. Built in the 16th century and rebuilt in the 18th, it is characterised by its Baroque style and is now a museum hosting the Costume Moda Immagine collection.

Strikingly artistic are the monumental staircase, with its double ramp and Rococo-style volute balustrade, and the gallery of busts, full of sculptures. Not to be outdone are the Chinese Gallery, where you can admire oriental porcelain and ceramics from the Morando collection, and the Olympus Room, boasting decorations commemorating the wedding of Giovanni Villa and Maria Pusterla. Equally impressive are the Egyptian Room, featuring Egyptian and classical motifs and a mosaic floor, the Hercules Room, with a marvellous fresco by painter Giovanni Battista Ronchelli, the Salottino Dorato (Little Golden Parlour) and Sala Dhò, once a bedroom.

Palazzo Morando also houses countless paintings depicting historic views of Milan: a picturesque testimony that allows you to appreciate how the city has changed over time.
