INTO THE MILAN OF THE BETROTHED

Did you know that Hotel Sanpi is located exactly in the historical Milan of the Betrothed? Exactly nearby the locations where Alessandro Manzoni set the adventures of Renzo and Lucia?

Staying at Hotel Sanpi Milano gives you in fact the unique opportunity to experience the places of this incredible historical novel, that is for sure a symbol of the city of Milan.

First of all, following the path of the Betrothed, the stories of Hotel Sanpi and Renzo and Lucia first meet nearby Porta Orientale, today’s Porta Venezia. There is where Renzo arrived during the turmoil of San Martino in 1628, looking for Father Bonaventura, and his famous Capuchin Convent.

Moreover, the story of Renzo and Lucia ends right there at the lazaret, that in 1630 was the place destined for the sick of the plague. Even if the building has mainly going destroyed with the years, today you can still admire its beautiful Church of San Carlo al Lazaretto.

Sounds familiar? Of course! All these things are located exactly in the neighbourhood of Hotel Sanpi Milano, and if you already stayed here, for sure saw them while walking around, maybe without knowing about the connection!

Going back to our story, after walking by the lazaret, Renzo keeps on walking on the Loreto’s path, in the countryside, that today is nothing but the famous Corso Buenos Aires, full of shops and restaurants.

Once arrived in Piazza Oberdan, Renzo is finally at the centre of the Milan of the time, going then through Corso Venezia and walking by today’s Porta Venezia Gardens, where in the past you could admire the San Dionigi Cathedral.

Not finding what he was looking for at the Capuchin Convent, Renzo continues his adventures around Milan and outside of it, coming back to these locations connected to Hotel Sanpi Milano only at the very end of the novel.

At the end of 1630, as already mentioned, Renzo comes in fact back to Milan during the pest, looking for Lucia at the lazaret, where instead he found the terrible Don Rodrigo dying.

Finally the happy ending in viale Tunisia, where he finds again his Lucia!

Diving into the novel of the Betrothed makes you feeling like going for a romance tour around Milan, in the atmospheres of Renzo and Lucia?
