Palazzo Annoni

Cug.3

This impressive Neoclassical complex was built at the turn of the 19th century and consists of a rectangular central building on three floors. An enormous garden extends to the rear in the English Romantic style and here there are numerous monumental trees including a marvellous Cedar of Lebanon. The entire complex was designed by the architect Giuseppe Zanoia. The palace has an area of over 4000 square metres and the parklands come to 270,000 square metres. This makes it one of the grandest residences in the entire Ticino area in Lombardy. Inside, there are some 16th century frescoes taken from an old church which was demolished in 1960. The palace was bought by the municipal authorities and has been partly restored so that since 2007 it has housed the Town Hall. The great park to the rear was damaged during the Battle of Cinque Giornate di Milano when a company of soldiers camped here and were actually visited by Radetzky during an inspection of the border with the State of Sardinia. Further damage was done during the Second World War. However, the gardens have recently been in part replanted and restored thanks to a contribution from the Consorzio del Parco del Ticino and are now open to the public.
