The palazzo has always been a property of the Tucci family and its architectural characteristics are due to Giuseppe Tucci, one of the ancestors of the present owners, who, having married to Maria Teresa Guinigi, decided to restore the mansion, owned since XVI century, with architectural innovation.
The restoration has been so radical that no medieval trace remains in the facade while the rear, backing plaster, shows the original structure, made of several buildings and towers. A beautiful arch, made of decorated "cotto", is still visible in the vineyard and proves the (great) importance the mansion had in the past.
Most probably (likely) Giuseppe Tucci ordered the restoration project to Ottaviano Diodati who, in those years, was one of the most modern and innovative architect in Italy, France and in Vienna. It's not by chance that the Palazzo is one of the few in town showing a sort of "Viennese" style.
The building is in an area inside the roman walls and its main entrance in via Cesare Battisti.The main facade is characterized by a grand main door surmounted by a family crest and the inscription "JOSEPH TUCCIUS SIBI POSTERISQUE - A. D. MDCCLXXIX".
On the rear of the Palazzo a marble plate remembers (that) the musician Alfredo Catalani was born here, whose "operas" give their names to each bedrooms.
The entrance hall leads through a grand stain to the main apartment with decorations of golden stuccoes and some paintings late 18th century and in some cases other paintings show sign of new-classicism that testify the restoration went on for some time.
