No more prestigious apartments, in the future the building that housed the Bank of Italy in Piazza Perretta could become a multipurpose "palace" with a starred hotel and showroom, an increasingly fashionable format in international capitals. An asset for tourism in the Como area, a stone's throw from the lake, but also from the heart of the city. The building was the headquarters of the state banking institution for over fifty years until 2017, when it was decided to close a series of territorial offices, including the capital one as part of a maxi rationalization plan launched in 2015 A piece of the recent history of the city, where many people from Como brought their old lire to have them changed into euros and where the single currency had arrived "in preview". The architectural complex, of absolute prestige, also due to its location in the historic center, occupies a total of approximately 6500 square meters, which were then purchased by foreign funds, which entrusted the Morgran development company for the complete redevelopment of the property. The project submitted to the previous municipal administration involved the demolition and reconstruction of a new structure in which to build a series of commercial and local activities on the ground floor, with a closed central courtyard and a series of crossings (tunnels) for public use. Commerce, management and administration were also the hypothesized destinations on the first floor, while the residences (about fifteen) were located on the other floors. The construction of an underground garage was envisaged in the old vault, with the option of further excavations in the subsoil (Roman remains permitting).
