The Galleries of Italy - Piazza Scala is an exhibition space which comprehends Palazzo Anguissola Antona Traversi, Brentani Palace and the Palace of the Italian Commercial Bank.

They contain countless works of art of the nineteenth and twentieth century, with also some very important names, from Canova to Boccioni. The works are owned by the Cariplo Foundation and Banca Intesa Sanpaolo.

The exhibition space, however, is of great interest also regarding the buildings in which it is located.

Palace of the Italian Commercial Bank
It constitutes the first block and includes the entrance to the exhibition space. The building was built in the early twentieth century, designed by Luca Beltrami. Unfortunately it was built where there were the baroque church of St. John the Beheaded and the Coffee Martini, became famous for being the meeting point of the patriots in Milan after 1848.

Palazzo Anguissola Antona Traversi
The inner body of the building was built between 1775 and 1778 by architect Carlo Felice Soave, for Antonio Anguissola.
In 1817 the Count Anguissola sold his palace to an exponent of the Milanese bourgeoisie, the lawyer John the Baptist Traversi.
The interiors are embellished with stuccos, decorations and frescoes.
In the cloister, now completely enclosed by a glass wall, there is the disk in the form of Desert Rose by Arnaldo Pomodoro.

Palace Brentani
The current appearance of the palace Brentani, built in the eighteenth century, is the result of the intervention of the architect Luigi Canonica, made between 1829 and 1831 by order of the family Greppi, owner of the building at that time.
It also includes some state rooms richly decorated.
Above the first floor windows are arranged eleven medallions with busts of prominent personalities related to the history of Milan, including Leonardo Da Vinci , Antonio Canova, Pietro Verri , Cesare Beccaria, Giuseppe Parini , and Alessandro Volta.
