This stately home, dating back to 1700, spreads over two levels and features a stunning garden in the Italian court style, set against the splendid backdrop formed by the Norman cathedral. A central staircase designed by architect Ernesto Basile dominates the entrance, with its triumph of cast-iron winged caryatids.
Various architectural styles have made an appearance at the palazzo over the years and at present the facade shows the latest "tweak", made during the early 1900s, which lent the exterior an art nouveau finish while indoors the various rooms offer an assortment of Rococo, Empire, and Art Nouveau decor.
The floor of the piano nobile, or main floor housing the family's reception rooms, has been completely renovated using the London series by Ceramica Faetano, from Del Conca Group. Each room features a different accent tile, either CAMDEN, WHITECHAPEL, or NOTTING HILL, which blend in perfectly with the tones of the beautiful frescoes by Olivio Sozzi.
