Palazzo Edison

Located in Milan at 31 Foro Buonaparte, Palazzo Edison has been our headquarters since 1923.

The building was constructed between 1891 and 1892 and designed by architect Enrico Combi for the Strade Ferrate del Mediterraneo company.

As it moved ahead with this project, the company’s administration”(...) embraced the concept that the new building had to be erected with a rational grandeur of style, without exceeding the limits that an industrial company must never lose sight of (...)”.

Historic glass roofs

The three glass roofs located on the first floor date from 1922. The first flat glass roof covers an octagonal area at the entrance to the building and occupies a central position between two side rooms – located to the east and west – which feature two impressive, almost matching vaults. Constructed by the Corvaya-Bazzi & C. company in Milan, they are composed of 18,000 pieces of coloured glass, weigh 2 tons and cover an area of 550 square metres.

The fountain room

The second floor, which contains the president’s and representative offices, is also home to the boardroom, known as the “fountain room” because inside it boasts a splendid marble fountain engraved with a verse from St. Francis’ “Canticle of the Sun” devoted to water: “Laudato si mi Signore per sora acqua la quale è molto utile et umile et preziosa et casta” (Praised be You, my Lord, through Sister Water, which is very useful and humble and precious and chaste). This piece is not only decorative, but also – thanks to water emitted by numerous nozzles – served to absorb smoke from cigars and cigarettes smoked during meetings.
