When you’re around, you’ll certainly notice how architect Giulio Ulisse Arata’s Berri-Meregalli Palace stands out amongst other buildings in the area.

Built between 1911 and 1914, this is a splendid example of eclecticism combining several styles (romantic, gothic, liberty and Renaissance) which would perfectly fit Gaudì’s Barcelona.

Don’t miss the opportunity to admire the spectacular lobby, covered in marble, ashlars, arches, alabasters and multicolor mosaics. At the bottom of the hall, you will also find the Adolfo Wildt’s “Vittoria alata” (The winged Victory) statue.

PS: while you’re in the area, don’t forget to cross the street and see if the pink flamingoes of Villa Invernizzi (Via Cappuccini, n. 9) are in the garden.
