Palazzo Vertemate Franchi is without a shadow of doubt one of the most charming 16th-century noble residences in Lombardy.

The building’s elegant and sober exterior gives little clue to the opulence of the interior. It was commissioned by two brothers, both in trade, and despite the villa’s suburban location, no expense was spared for its construction, although unfortunately we do not know the names of the architects, designers and artists that helped create this magnificent place.

However a visit still gives an idea of the opulence and luxury the two brothers wanted to project, especially with the Halls of Jupiter and Mercury, the statue of Juno and the Hall of Perseus with their triumph of frescoes and richly-decorated painted vaulted and wooden ceilings, all different from one another.

The palazzo also hosts many cultural events, some of which take place on the beautiful terrace overlooking the vineyard.
