Visited along the routes:

Classic route

 

The Coffee House was born out of the ingenious intuition of Antonio Pedrocchi who trasformed the little coffee shop inherited from his father, into a great building, few steps from the historical seat of the University, open day and night, so that it became the "coffee-house with no doors".

Thanks to the elegant building planned following the project of the architect Jappelli, the coffee-house soon became, the favourite meeting place for men of letters, poets, patriots, but at the same time, it gave hospitality to businessmen and occasional visitors.

The first floor was open in the year 1842 on the occasion of the IV Italian Scientists' Congress and gave hospitality to parties, balls, meetings and business reunions. Every room takes the name from the different pictorial decorations. Today it is a museum .
