Piazza Mercanti is a central city square of Milan, Italy. It is located between Piazza del Duomo, which marks the centre of the modern city of Milan, and Piazza Cordusio, and it used to be the heart of the city in the Middle Ages. At the time, the square was larger than it is now and known as "Piazza del Broletto", after the "Broletto Nuovo", the palace that occupied the centre of the square . In the 13th century, there were six entry points to the square, each associated to a specific trade, from sword blacksmiths to hat makers.
Until the late 19th century, Oh bej! Oh bej! was held in Piazza Mercanti.

  • I went there, but the largest building facing Piazza Mercanti is under construction. It was an atmosphere that was not likely to end for the time being. Until this work is finished, it will remain restless.

  • Square in the middle of the city is interesting historically and culturally. The buildings that surround it are very beautiful. A few steps from the Cathedral.

  • Whoever said that Milan has hardly any touristic value, I could come up with at least a dozen reasons, one of which would be Piazza Mercanti and it's amazing history. Though many people walk right past it without giving it a second glance, I (oftentimes) find myself slow down my speed just to admire bot the architecture and the history of this location.
  • If you are hungry and you wanna eat a really good pizza this is your place. They have so many different pizza that I am sre you will need some time to choose the best pizza for yourself. The pizza are big so you can even share it with friends. The staff are really fast and friendly so you won't wait at all.
