Torre dei Gorani


Via Brisa, 731, 20123  Milano


Set in Milan, in via Gorani, Torre Goranidates back to the 11th century and it was part of Palazzo Gorani, now destroyed.

The tower is just one of the towers of the buildings that decorated Milan during the Middle Age. It is made of cotto tiles with no plaster: the last floor is decorated with double or triple arch windows and round arches.

Once situated in via Gorani, the building was destroyed by a bomb during the II World War, in 1943. The Baroque porch and a part of the perimeter wall survived the bombing.

Architects Checchi & Lima curated the recovery project of the area, they renovated the medieval Tower and restored the Roman mosaic paving.
