Casa Manzoni is an 18th-century palace at the historical centre of Milan and the home of the famous Italian poet and novelist Alessandro Manzoni between 1813 and his death in 1873.

Manzoni is famous for his historical novel I Promessi Sposi (The Betrothed), considered as one of the masterpieces of world literature and said to be the most famous and widely read novel of the Italian language.

The museum offers an insight into the life of Manzoni, with all the rooms still having their original furnishing and ornaments. Besides the museum, Casa Manzoni also houses the Centro Nazionale di Studi Manzoniani, preserving Manzoni’s personal library with over 38.000 books.
