Palazzo Marino open to the public on 2 June

Four newly restored chambers on show.

The main attractions in Palazzo Marino when it opens to the public on 2 June, La Festa della Repubblica, are the four newly restored chambers on the ground floor with their 17th century frescoes.

Sala Alessi, the city council chamber, and its antechamber will also be on show to visitors. In the afternoon there are concerts in the central courtyard. There are also various exhibitions, one covering the city's voluntary services in Sala Alessi and another on the Italian constitution in the Cortile d'Onore. To entertain children there is a new app called Palazzo Marino Kids.

Palazzo Marino in Piazza della Scala has been the home of Milan's city council since the Unification of Italy. It was built in the mid-16th century by the banker Tomasso Marino and designed by the architect Galeazzo Alessi but it was seized by the pubic administration on Marino's death to pay for his debts.
