Visiting Corso Buenos Aires, it will be difficult not to notice the titanic Palazzo Luraschi, a huge nineteenth-century building built by the architect of the same name on the site where the ancient Lazzaretto of the city, an hospital for the plague victims, once stood. To preserve the historical memory, the architect decided to include the original columns of the old Lazzaretto in the main courtyard of the building, which he then decorated with terracotta inlays and sculptures representing the main characters of Manzoni’s “The Betrothed”. Today this courtyard is one of the most evocative points of the city, where to breathe the authentic opulence of the Milan of the times gone by.
