The “House of the Omenoni” was built by Leone Leoni and is one of the most interesting late sixteenth century buildings in Milan. It has eight caryatids called “Omenoni’’ (big men) which are the work of Antonio Abbondio and are of Michelangelesque inspiration.

Inside there is a courtyard surrounded by porticos with Tuscan columns. The facade has some fine stone decorations and below the cornice, which supports the roof, there is a fine frieze in alto-rilievo representing ” Slander devoured by lions “.
