This, originally the residence of the Bossi family, was later acquired by the Landriani. Tommaso Landriani in fact rebuilt the palazzo between 1515 and 1523. Part of the façade and the inner courtyard remain from the original 16th-century architecture. The design and the terra cotta mouldings can be attributed to Cesariano, while the pictorial decoration that once ran along the walls of the inner court has completely disappeared. Feature of interest: The fresco depicting 'Hercules and Atlas', possibly by Bernardino Luini and now conserved at the Castle Museums, once belonged to the paintings in the courtyard, while the decoration of the 'Centenario' hall can be attributed to Cesariano, possibly with assistance from Zenale.
