Palazzo Taverna in Rome
Palazzo Taverna, located in Via di Monte Giordano, in the heart of Rome, between Piazza Navona and Castel Sant'Angelo, was built in the 15th century on the ruins of Giordano Orsini Fortress from where the Orsini dominated the area until the end of the Tiber.
In the halls of the Baroque wing, beautifully furnished with period furniture, thanks to the presence of a remarkable art gallery, it is enveloped by the charm and elegance of the old houses. Palazzo Taverna is the ideal place to host weddings, cocktails, business lunches, meetings and exclusive business meetings. The catering service is personally supervised by Stefanina Aldobrandini, who for over 20 years in the many palaces, villas and castles she has, is able, thanks to highly qualified staff and the use of tablecloths, porcelains, antique silverware and vintage livery recreate an atmosphere of splendor and efficiency that recalls the hospitality of the great private homes of other times.
Palazzo Taverna, located in via di Monte Giordano, in the heart of Rome, between Piazza Navona and Castel Sant'Angelo, was built in the XV century on the ruins of the fortress of Giordano Orsini (remembered by Dante, Inf. XVIII, 99), from where the Orsini dominated the area up to the bank of the Tiber.
Since then the building will be the reference point for the family's "representation" policy. It was the residence of ambassadors and cardinals (Ippolito d'Este received Bernardo and Torquato Tasso, while Cardinal Luciano Bonaparte, great-grandson of Napoleon, hosted Empress Eugenie and her father Gioacchino Belli who entertained the guests with his sonnets). Purchased by Maurizio di Savoia who did his utmost to embellish it, he went to the beginning of the 1600 to the Gabrielli who made some changes giving it the current appearance; finally, the last change of ownership occurred in favor of the Taverna.
A short climb, through the high portal, leads to the picturesque courtyard; in front of it there is an elegant fountain by A. Casoni (1615), consisting of four successive pools and surrounded by a thick exedra of laurel, which characterizes one of the most secret and peculiar corners of Rome. Immediately to the right, at the bottom, there are nineteenth-century buildings of medieval and Renaissance taste. With the "Torre Augusta" (1880) and a large hall, on the opposite side, through an architraved portal of the Renaissance, we arrive in a beautiful courtyard with an external staircase, a portico and three wide arches on columns with fine capitals (sec. XV) and an upper loggia, partly walled.
Inside, in the large reception rooms of the main floor, beyond the valuable antique furniture, you can admire the collections of paintings by Sebastiano Ricci and Rosa da Tivoli.
