Secret garden near the Gallerie d’Italia

The Garden of Alessandro Manzoni

Via Gerolamo Morone, 1, 20121 Milano MI
+39 02 8646 0403

Open to the public since 15th October 2015, the garden can be found between Casa del Manzoni and Palazzo Anguissola Antona Traversi.

Walking among the basswood and magnolia trees of this green patch in the heart of Milan, you might chance upon a contemporary art sculpture realised by Joan Miró, Giò Pomodoro, Jean Arp or Pietro Cascella. There is also a niche fountain with the bust of Alexander the Great, a symbol of prestige for the Anguissola line and a clear sign of Count Antonio Carlo’s passion for classical antiquities.
