Pallavicino Palace

A noble House before, it later was home to the Convento delle Canossiane, a beggar’s shelter of “Casa Balilla” in the fascist years of the 1920’s. Then, after years of abandonment, we saw Alberto Grimoldi’s outstanding restoration work. A visit to the Pallavicino palace is an exceptional aesthetic experience: the old gate, the authentic one, is found in a courtyard of the Middle Ages, in which you can admire the stratifications produced from the later epochs.
