Address: Piazza Vittorio Veneto

Ingresso: Proprietà privata


The building is characterised by an elegant and complex layout on the facade in four overlapping horizontal areas and embellished with decorations of different colours and materials.

The grey stone basement, which houses the rectangular openings to the underground rooms, acts as a counterpoint to the light-coloured horizontal plaster above, which stops at the height of the arches of the windows and the doorways of the ground floor

This area in turn progresses to the statement section in finished ochre-coloured plaster, in which there are alternating slender mullioned segmental arches and balconies, that overlook the entrance ways to the building, and mullioned windows on a smaller scale.

Between the high cornice, supported by elaborate concrete corbels decorated with imitation wood, and the top of the windows of the first floor, runs an elegant geometric band decorated with plant motifs in light shades that contrast with the background terracotta colour.

Of particular interest are the elaborate wrought iron railings used in the balconies and in the fanlights of the doors and windows of the ground floor.

Historical Notes

Built in the early decades of the 20th century the building, located in front of the west side of Porta Napoli, responds fully to the styles of Art Nouveau, which spread throughout Italy under the name of ‘Liberty’, especially in the first decades of the 20th century.
