Palazzo Cassoli

Palazzo Cassoli

Palazzo Cassoli is a historical building located in the centre of Reggio Emilia and precisely in via Roma, 11.

In the 16th century, the building was of the Boccacci family, that sold it in 1607 to count Girolamo Cassoli. At the end of the 17th century the facade was redone with a weave of leaves made of lime and pozzolana; the windows and the portal where adapted too.

Unfortunately, the restoration done after the Cassa Nazionale Infortuni bought the building in 1924, changed he original look of the facade, due to the reconstruction of the parts that the centuries ruined.

The inside was decorated in the 20th century by Anselmo Govi and there are remains of temepera paintings of Domenico Pellizzi.
