This 18th century palace was donated to the city in 1945 by the Attendolo Bolognini family - it holds the Museo Civico di Milano (first housed in 1935 in Palazzo Sormani) on the first floor, and the ground floor is home to the Civic Museum of Contemporary History (inaugurated in 1963 with the aid of A. Rossi, M. Baffa, L. Meda and U. Rivolta). The palace was modified at the beginning of the 19th century, and the 18th century façade is partially Baroque. The inside has two wide granite doors, and has conserved a great deal of its original aspect. The wide stairway with stone parapets leads to the noble apartment which is still decorated with period furniture and furnishings. It has frescoed vaults by Giovan Antonio Cucchi, and walls with pictures from both the collection by Attendolo Bolognini, and from the art gallery in the Museum of Milan.
