History

The Palace is located in the Parione district, as is the emblem on the façade. Almost as big as the entire block, bordered by Via della Pace, Piazza del Fico and Vicolo della Fossa, the Palazzo is located close to Piazza Navona; from its windows you can see the lovely church of Santa Maria della Pace and immerse yourself in Roman life with the chess players of the Fico bar, one of the most typical and popular bars in Rome.

The origins of the building, to date, are not known exactly but in the plans of the time it is reported in its entirety.

It is in fact present in the map of Rome of 1661 - 1662 "drawing and prospect of the Alma city of Rome ...." designed by Antonio Tempesta and engraved in copper. The Palace is shown again in the 1676 plan drawn and engraved by Giovanni Battista Falda "New plan and elevation of the city of Rome ...".
The plant of the Falda is very reliable indeed the historian D. Gnoli of it writes "(...) it is admirable for exactitude of reproduction and fineness of execution (...)"
In the axonometric view (a bird's eye view) piazza della Pace is marked and the building in all its completed form. The same completed form of block is found in the later plan of another important architect who "definitively fixes in the projection, in the figuration (...) the type of the new plan of Rome": Giovanni Batista Nolli. Reproduced with modifications in the 1748 even though he was already working on it in the 1736 as shown by some correspond
