STATE AND FINISHES
The palace has the architectural and stylistic features of the major restoration and consolidation works implemented in the 1920s.
The “Guelph cross windows” that stand out on the main facade, as well as the upper mullioned windows and the arches with column and capital in the loggia, were brought back to life by reintegrating the original elements. Similar restoration c was implemented in the east corner portico.
The building overlooks characteristic and romantic views, with palaces and churches, restaurants, stores and the River Tiber as a backdrop.
The Palazzo is a place of enormous historical and architectural significance as a result of its history, architectural-artistic elements, its ideal location in the center of Rome but in a very quiet area, and for being the only intact example of medieval architecture for sale in Rome in its entirety. The absence of structural problems and the high level of maintenance makes it particularly attractive.
An interesting feature of the Palazzo is the the possibility of combining residential and large scale functions. It is a private residence of enormous prestige where one can live easily and be able to accommodate high numbers of guests while also organizing evenings of concerts and receptions.
