Top ways to experience Ospedale Maggiore Ca' Granda Università Statale and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

The hospital was founded in 1456 at the request of the spouses Francesco Sforza and Bianca Maria Visconti as the main hospital for the poor Milanese. The construction of a huge complex in the Renaissance style began to be built by Filarete, but it was completed by other architects. Since 1958, the humanities faculties of the State University have been housed in the former hospital. The Ospedale Maggiore hospital itself was moved to the northern part of the city, to a new building complex.

The enormous but magnificent structure was built in 1456 by a Tuscan architect: Antonio di Pietro Averulino, popularly knows as Il Filarete.
He also worked on the Sforzesco Castle and on the Cathedral.
He designed a large rectangular building in Renaissance style arranged around a series of inner courtyards.
The hospital moved to a new location, north of the city, in 1939 , the Ca’ Granda was renovated, after damaged of Second World War and now is the center of University Statale of Milan

The former Ospedale Maggiore, now the University of Milan, is comprised of multiple courtyards, surrounded by stately buildings. We enjoyed a stroll through beautiful and largely empty courtyards (students were on vacation).

My tour guide took me to this university. Over 60,000 students are enrolled here. It has nice building and history behind them. School was bombed during WWII and people rebuilt it.

The University of Milan isn't certainly one of the oldest in Italy: it dates back only to the 1920s (the Lombard University was until then only that of Pavia). For a combination of events, however, now it features probably the most beautiful architecture of every Italian university. In fact, its headquarters as well as its Humanities Departments occupy the building that was before a large, impressive, ancient hospital founded in the mid-fifteenth century
(the population traditionally called it "Ca 'Granda", meaning "Large Mansion").
This was at the time a model hospital, which testifies by its size (as the "Duomo" does), that at the end of the Middle Ages, Milan was one of the first cities in Europe (perhaps the largest along with Paris).
The building shows a typical Lombard style, dated (according to the construction periods) from the late Gothic to Baroque.
The main courtyard has a strong visual effect. It was accompanied by eight minor courtyards , four on the north-east side, four on the south-west one, of which only the latter retain the memory of the original style, the others having been destroyed by bombing in WW II .
The complex is obviously animated by the presence of the students, who have this beautiful building available for their studies. But tourists also should not overlook this main evidence about the glorious past of the city.

Designed by Antonio Filarete and completed by Amadeo in the 15th and 16th centuries, it was one of the Dukes of Milan main projects: a huge general hospital. Now it is the main seat of the oldest amon Milan's five universities, the Universita' degli Studi (aka Statale). The main courtyard is huge and very elegant, mostly in late Renaissance style; next to it are four smaller courtyards, early Renaissance. It is all occupied by Uni institutes, but you can come and go as you please. If you walk along the 15th century facade to corso di porta Romana you can vist the Renaissance church of San Nazaro - a nice detour.

I was lucky to visit this place while there was an exhibition. Didn’t know what exactly because it was early in the morning, but the display was stunning. Entrance is free and it’s definitely worth a visit, with ot without an exhibition.

What was once a hospital is now the state university in Milan.
The building is very lovely and there is free access in to the main courtyard of the grounds. There are boards up around the area with historical descriptions and information.

No charge. Free access to what is now university. Lots of information boards around in both Italian and English. Fascinating history - amazing to think it was founded almost 600 years ago.
