Situated at the heart of historic Milan, this building was designed by Francesco Maria Richini in 1644, to a commission by Giovan Battista Durini, and completed in 1645. The speed in the building of the palazzo, and the richness of the decorations, indicates the notable financial power of this rich family of merchants. The building is based on two courtyards, the first the formal court with columns and round arches, and the second for service quarters. The façade is bordered by ashlar-work and by a projecting cornice.
