The entrance is dominated by the large porch on whose walls was a lapidary with vestiges of the 17th century Fort of Fuentes, decorations and inscriptions of some buildings tardomedioevali lecchesi. On the ceiling of the staircase have emerged four medallions of the second half of the 19th century, with the portrait of many characters depicting the protagonists of the novel by Alessandro Manzoni.
