Lodi Virtual Tour

Lodi has Roman origins and its name Laus Pompeia is attributed to the Roman consul Gneo Pompeo Strabone that in '89 BC conceded the Latin Right to the Gallia Transpadana. Its position on the way to Milan was strategic and for this reason the City became a very important commercial and agricultural village. In 1111 it was destroyed by Milan and in 1158 it was reconstructed by Frederick Barbarossa not on the ruins of the Roman city, now old Lodi, but along the river Adda to have more control over the territory.
In the fourteenth century, Lodi formed an alliance to the Duchy of Milan under the Visconti, who built the "Castello di Porta Regale" (1370), and under the Sforza, that solidified the defense system building two forts. During the Renaissance Lodi lived important events such as the Peace of Lodi, which guaranteed 40 years of political stability.
Later Lodi was dominated by the Spanish, the Austrians and the French who put an end to Austrian domination in 1796 when Napoleon defeated them in the famous Battle of the Ponte di Lodi, decisive victory for the conquest of Milan.
Since the nineteenth century Lodi, still enclosed in medieval walls, begins to develop outside the Walls due to the inauguration of the railway line Milan-Piacenza and the birth of the first industries such as the "Lanificio Varesi-Lombardo" in 1868 and the Polenghi Lombardo in 1870 the area for the headquarters of the Banca Popolare di Lodi by Renzo Piano.

Virtual Tour of the "Banca Popolare di Lodi" Headquarters by Renzo Piano

One of the objective of the project by Renzo Piano was to create “a city within a city” a new pole of traffic and transit for the town. In addition to this function, the design for the Banca Popolare di Lodi Headquarters had to be a new center of aggregation for the city and the various functions offered by the project are aimed at this goal: from the internal square covered by a tensile structure of glass and steel to the Auditorium.
