Palazzo Gavazzi

Palazzo Gavazzi is a Neoclassical palace in Del Monte district, Milan, Italy. It is typical of the mansions built during the Restoration period, designed by Luigi Clerichetti in 1838 for the wealthy Gavazzi family.[1][2] Each floor bears its own decorations; Doric columns on the ground floor and various pilasters on the first and second floors, rather than the huge decorative works which were popular at the time. The symmetrical facade, covering three levels, is centred on a portal with four Ionic half-columns supporting the first-floor balcony.[1] The residence was the home of Carlo Cattaneo from 1840 to 1848.[3]
