Piazza Dei Mercanti was Milan's financial centre during the Middle Ages, being a place where tradesmen, craftsmen and shopkeepers gathered. This place flaunts some of the famous palaces in Italy—Palazzo della Ragione, Loggia degli Osii, Scuole Palatine, Casa dei Panigarola and Palazzo dei Giureconsulti. You would also find a monument dedicated to the poet Ausonius, and another one to St. Augustine—both designed by Giovan Pietro Lasagna of the 17th century. And if you are an antique lover, you must not miss the La Piazza dei Mercanti market show. This show is dedicated to Brocantage, Modernariato, Vintage antiques and collectibles, that offers all fans incredible opportunities to buy. It is open to professionals, amateurs and those who love wandering among the markets.
