The Palazzo Estense is a Baroque palace built for the Francesco III d’Este and the House of Este in Varese, Italy. The palace was designed by architect Giuseppe Bianchi and was completed in 1760. It became the home, in 1765, of Francesco III d’Este, Duke of Modena who was also Austrian governor of Lombardy. He straight away had the entire house restored. A large pool, located in the square in front of the palace, is the cornerstone of the architectural development of the entire garden, one of the mosy beautiful gardens of the eighteenth century in the whole of Lombardia. The chapel is dedicated to John The Baptist. Today, the palace houses the civic administration of the local municipal council and hosts conferences and concerts. In May 2010 it hosted a meeting of G6 Interior Ministers.
