The arrival of the emperor Federico Barbarossa, in the XII century, ransomed Monza from the citizenship of the potent common of Milan, jealous of its autonomy and splendour (was seat of the coronation of sovereigns). Favourite town from Barbarossa, that descended in it two time (in 1158, when elects the town at "sedes italici kingdoms", and in 1163, after the destruction of Milan for his hand), Monza continues prosper and increase in prestige (are erected the first wall). Its importance, above all economical, is based on the handicraft, in particular way on the working of the wool. Is built the Arengario, symbol of the politics power. But the departure of Barbarossa at the crusades and his death causes the loss of the indepencence of Monza, resubmited at Milan in the municipal fights. Also Monza was submited at the division between guelphs (Magantelli) and ghibellines (Stratoni). First took the parts of Torriani (1274) then was besieged from Ottone Visconti (1278).
