Borgo Nuovo Street got its name thanks to a combination of old and new. In general, everything with the word Borgo in its name in medieval Italian meant that it is behind the fortress wall. Indeed, this part of the city, like the whole of Brera, was once outside the ramparts. Only in the seventeenth century, when they began to build here expensive mansions this part of the city began to be called “new”. That is how Borgo Novo appeared. The house with the balcony and smooth walls was built as a mansion for the Orsini family in the seventeenth century, but today it houses the headquarters of Giorgio Armani.
