More info

When walking down Corso Magenta you enter Via Bernardino Luini and go on until when it becomes via Cappuccio, you enter a very quiet area hiding very nice and well preserved courtyards. Some are unaccessible, but one is visible from the street

It’s Palazzo De Capitani d’Arzago courtyard, standing out in the corner between Santa Valeria and Via Luini streets.

The building dates back to 1294, designed according to a seventeenth century taste. The fence comes from the destroyed church of S.Proteso.

Stand in front of the gate, smartphone in your hand, and  look at the façade: the wall of the internal courtyard is entirely covered in ivy.
