Casa degli Omenoni Milano

Two steps from Piazza della Scala, there are eight characters: they are the eight colossus, called “omenoni” sculptured by Antonio Abondio, which ornate the façade of the building by Leone Leoni, sculptor for Carlo V and Filippo II: the artist have built it as his own house in 1565, when he came to Milan after an adventurous life that brought him to the courts of kings but also to row on galleys. The building has kept the typical shape of late 1500 and the elegant first floor clashing with the ground floor, on which the great caryatids stand out.

Address: Via Omenoni 3 – Milano
