Casa Paleari (Butterfly House)

Casa Paleari (Casa delle Farfalle)

Casa Paleari is one of the most interesting architectural examples of Liberty Style in Monza for the uniqueness of the decoration and the good state of the interiors (windows and railings, furniture).

It is a building of three floors. The first-floor balconies show a balustrade richly decorated with floral motifs. The windows in the upper part, show at the center a cement medallion with a large butterfly (from which the name Butterfly House) and flower bouquets. The butterfly motif returns in the railings of the balconies of the top floor, while in the railings of the ground floor return floral motifs.
