The Palazzo was designed in 1648 by Francesco Maria Richino commissioned by G.B. Durini, member of a family of merchants. The façade is traversed with frames that delineate the different internal levels of the ground floor, first floor and two mezzanines. The elegant building is located in the city centre near Piazza San Babila and is built around a courtyard. On the left, a staircase leads to the upper rooms that were frescoed and decorated in 1600 and 1700 with mythological scenes in Homeric tradition. On the right hand side there is access to the rustic courtyard and outbuildings, while the body of the building opposite the entrance overlooks a rear garden.
