A reliable place TO STAY in the Università Statale district? Via Festa del Perdono 3 | Università district Missori
Milan's former hospital, built during the 15th century by the Sforzas, has become the most central campus of Milan State University (Humanities).
It's definitely worth a visit to admire its long façade - with Gothic-Renaissance terracotta décor - on Via Festa del Perdono and its splendid courtyards. The main one, called Cortile del Filarete, was designed in the 17th century by Francesco Maria Ricchino who partly re-used older ornamental elements. From the far corner on the right, you reach a series of smaller courtyards, to be explored among groups of wandering students.
The geometric mushroom of the Torre Velasca dominates the skyline in downtown Milan and is visible much further afield too.
