Palazzo Stanga Trecco
Belonging to the noble family of the Stanga Marquises, the palazzo was founded at the end of the 15th century: of the early building the far side of the courtyard is preserved almost intact, with mullioned windows, oculi and rich typically Cremonese Renaissance terracotta decoration. The current two floor façade was rebuilt in the 18th century, and the courtyard was also rebuilt at the beginning of the 19th century by architect Faustino Rodi, who was also responsible for the majestic neoclassical stairway decorated with stuccowork and niches containing statues. The interior houses precious frescoes in the first floor rooms, as well as a bedroom where Napoleon is believed to have spent the night during his visit to Cremona and which retains a splendid wooden inlaid floor, a four-poster bed and original neoclassical furniture and furnishings.
