In the center of Rome, Corso Patrizi opens the doors to the “piano nobile” (noble floor) of their family home, Palazzo Patrizi. The stately home was purchased at the end of the 16th century by the Aldobrandini family who subsequently commissioned Carlo Maderno to build the current façade, based on a design by Giacomo della Porta. In 1642 the home passed into the hands of Marquess Patrizi, of Sienese origin, who made significant changes to the building, contributing to its present structure. The rooms are furnished with period furniture from the 17th and 18th centuries, and are home to a particularly interesting collection of paintings which was established at the beginning of the 17th century through the patronage of the treasurer Paolo V Borghese Costanzo Patrizi. The stately home is still the family’s main residence, and visiting the home will leave you feeling as if you have travelled back in time, recalling the events of a family linked to the era of papal Rome. Why not enjoy a simple aperitif, or a more formal lunch or dinner, all excellent opportunities to step back into history, and soak up the emotion and excitement as Corso Patrizi recounts with enthusiasm the story of the famous Vessillo di Santa Romana Chiesa!
