Archeology site of via Brisa
Built by Emperor Maximian in the 4th c. AD when Milan was the capital of the Roman empire in the West, the imperial palace occupied a huge area between what are now Via Meravigli and Via Torino. The only remains of the huge building are to be seen in Via Brisa. It was during demolition work following WW2 that parts of the foundations and of the elevation were found but it was thought originally that they belonged to a baths complex. Now they are considered to have been part of the official section of Maximian's palace. The central plan building is made up of 3 series of small apsed rooms that open onto the sides of a large round hall (once surrounded by columns) which was reached via a rectangular atrium. The remains are worthy of a brief pause, not so much for what they are, but for the fact that are representative of a glorious past.
