  • Torelli's Palace

    Just in the old town center of Tirano, along Torelli Street and Sant'Agostino Street, close to the City Hall, people can find Torelli's Palace. The Palace, that have been the recidence of Misasi's family, is the place where the Count Luigi Torelli has got borned and where he has died (1810-1887), important personality of the valley, who has been part of the historical Cinque Giornate in Milan and who later became Minister and Senator of the Italian Kingdom. Torelli's Palace has been built in the XVI century, it has an indoor court with a beautiful baroque portal and an elegant balcony. In all the halls it is possible to find frescos maybe painted by the Jesuit painter Giovan Battista Muttoni, all enriched with beautiful period furniture. The chapel and the sacristy, the both overlooked to the court, are valuable. The Palace has been ably restored and brought back to its old splendour thanks to the direct effort of the Torelli's Family. At the end of the street rises the Torelli's Tower, with fake medieval structures, built in the second half of the XIX century.

    "Rivetti&Lauro" cellars are in the historical cellars of the Palace where there are old warehouses with
    wooden and vaulted ceilings and a beautiful room with a wine press.
