This unique property is located in an ancient building in the prestigious via Cairoli and more than any other housing unit testifies to the transformation process of the building since the historic center of Genoa was built in the Middle Ages.
The apartment is spread over two floors. The first floor, about 130 square meters big, consists of a large entrance hall with a wardrobe room, two large bedrooms, kitchen with a brick vault, a beautiful dining room, a bright living area with loggia and a bathroom with tub; on the second floor, an about 50 square meters studio, a walk-in closet and a second large bathroom with shower.
The palace still retains all the architectural signs that tell its history, from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance up to the eighteenth century: marble and slate stairs, exposed bricks and plaster, stone capitals and marble columns.
During the extraordinary maintenance work on the apartment carried out in the mid-90s, decorative paintings and architectural elements from different eras came to light: wooden beams floors from the fifteenth-century, slate slabs sculpted above some windows, late seventeenth-century tempera murals and eighteenth-century floral paintings, allegorical decorations certainly restored in the nineteenth century on the dome covering the hall, refined curtains painted in the covered loggia decorated with replica of marble columns.
The marvelous grit flooring, with precious coral inserts and extremely elegant motifs, is dated 1883.
At the center of the property there is a sort of gallery, enhanced in the current internal composition, in which are located fluted pilasters, capitals, molded frames, bas-reliefs and small eighteenth-century plaster medallions.
Renovation of the facades and the construction of an elevator, which will lead to apartment’s the entrance door, are currently underway. In this unique apartment, living surrounded by history and beauty, in the heart of the historic center of Genoa, is simple reality.
