The article proposes a study on the pictorial decorations on the exteriors of the architectures in the medieval period, which focuses on the small urban portion of Milan on which the Archbishop’s Palace and Royal Palace (the ancient Corte dell’Arengo) insist. The two main buildings are the subject of a physical and documentary reconnaissance aimed at recovering and understanding their 14th century appearance, ascribable, on a case-by-case basis, to choices made by Giovanni, Azzone and Gian Galeazzo Visconti. This survey is conducted in the light of what is known about practice and what on the painted façades is theorized in the architectural treatises. The Archbishop’s Palace is considered as an architecture commissioned by Giovanni Visconti: the pictorial traces still present on its façades are analyzed distinguishing between the originals and those referring to subsequent pictorial campaigns, which are investigated in their formal component. The analysis of literary and photographic documents related to the Corte dell’Arengo, brings to the attention especially the cultural choices made by Azzone Visconti, highlighting the tendency to emulate the antiquity practice.
