As for the wellness area, the structure houses two large cabins, a wide range of treatments and a highly qualified staff.
Palazzo Gentili was built in the 1524 at the behest of Francesco Gentili, a noble gentleman who moved together with his family from the current area of the Fabrianese to San Severino Marche, a small town full of charm, in the heart of the Marche region.
The structure overlooks the marvelous Piazza del Popolo: its central position makes it easily accessible and allows guests to move in comfort.
The loggia of Piazza del Popolo houses the main entrance, anticipating the great beauty for which the palace was already known in the Renaissance, a sign of the power held by the Gentili di Rovellone family. The magnificent arched doorway, embellished by masks by local artist Venanzio Bigioli (1771 - 1854) anticipate the short staircase, surrounded by 4 imposing columns, accompanying visitors towards the main stairs of the structure and towards the inner courtyard.
The unique and elegant style is visible in every detail, as in the handrails that guide guests to the upper floors, where each room contains a real treasure in the form of the wonderful frescoes on the walls and the ceiling.
Pearls of these environments so full of history are the sumptuous ballroom, with original elements such as the large mirrors on the walls and the wrought iron balcony. Going up only one floor, in one of the apartments, you can enter through a small door into a true work of art: the private chapel of the Gentili family, entirely frescoed by the Biglioli and complete with the original furnishings.
The internal court
The inner court and the garden represent a cross-section of visible history, as the guest goes up through the upper floors, the chronology of the changes in the structure: the legacy that the Gentile generations have deliberately left during their history confirms the philosophy that pushed Francesco Gentili to build this splendid architectural work "for himself and for posterity".
Magnificent example of Renaissance art is the chapel dedicated to Blessed Camilla Gentili located in the noble apartments on the second floor. Camilla, daughter of Luca Gentili di Rovellone, in Brandina Grassi, was killed by her spouse Battista Santucci, a violent man who had always been in strong conflict with the Grassi family, who had violated the ban on talking to her mother. Attracted by deceit in the country by her husband, she was stabbed several times in the chest despite the fact that she prayed to the Lord for forgiveness to the last. After the incident the husband tried to escape, without succeeding. Buried in the church of San Domenico, His tomb was immediately a popular destination for many faithful. It was for this, finally, proclaimed Blessed by Pope Gregory XVI in the 1841.
