Palazzo di Residenza a Bologna

Intesa Sanpaolo

A feat of Eclecticism for late 19th-century Bologna, the Palazzo was built between 1868 and 1877 by Giuseppe Mengoni, famous for Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. This airy space covered with pink-toned marble, a break from the brickwork-dominated dictates of Bolognese architecture, graciously marries late-Gothic and 15th-century motives with classical forms and modern metal structures. A fin-de-siècle atmosphere exudes from every room, where the furnishings, frescoes and stuccowork are preserved in their original opulence.
