  Notes of art in Lombardy

Along Via Civerchi stands Palazzo Benzoni with its magnificent portal flanked by marble caryatids. Prestigious headquarters of the Municipal Library of Crema, is a seventeenth-century reconstruction of a sixteenth-century residence of the nobles Benzoni, the same ones that implement the seventeenth-century transformation of the building. Despite the heavy tampering suffered over the centuries, the building has retained the original features of a rich noble residence. An elegant portico overlooking the internal garden leads to the monumental staircase adorned with statues that rises to the main floor, where the rooms of the library show beautiful stucco decorations, friezes and seventeenth-century frescoes.
