Zurla de Poli Palace
Built in 1520 by Leonardo Zurla, for his noble Cremasca family, the building has a sober facade that follows the Lombard sixteenth-century canons and which, as was the custom of the time, reserve the splendor for the interior.
The reserved areas of the noble salons of the past become today a unique location for corporate and cultural events, visits and workshops. Palazzo Zurla De Poli can make use of a network of professionals and companies for the provision of services on request.
The rebirth of the building is strongly desired by the De Poli family to offer added value to the city, as a space for cultural promotion activities within the enhancement process of Crema and the territory, in synergy with all the promoting institutions.
Palazzo Zurla De Poli returns to welcome all those who set out on the trail of these ancient splendors, opening their rooms to discover refined environments and stories that make the residence a place of the soul.
Set in the heart of Lombardy, the residence is part of an urban fabric that intertwines art and tradition, and whose values find the reverberation of a renewed dialogue between past and present in the unique context of the building.
Built in 1520 as a hunting lodge and meeting place for artists and writers, Palazzo Zurla De Poli is a masterpiece of the Lombard Renaissance which over the centuries has been a privileged place for receptions, hunting parties, social gatherings and cultural exchanges of the noble Zurla family. .
In the hall of honor and three rooms on the main floor, it presents cycles of frescoes with a sacred and profane theme - including the parable of the Prodigal Son of the Gospel of Luke and the fable of Cupid and Psyche from "The Metamorphoses" by Apuleius - dated from the 40s to 70s, by the major workers of the time, including Aurelio Buso and Giovan Battista Castello known as Il Bergamasco.
From 2020 the palace, following an important conservative restoration work, reopens to the public under a new guise, returning to the city of Crema the wonders kept in this rediscovered treasure.
