The Palace, built according to a precise neo-Renaissance style, has an internal courtyard, preceded by a vestibule which can be accessed from the entrance facing the privately owned avenue.

It’s also envisaged the creation of a waterproofing, after appropriate removal of the current layers of materials, of the part of the top cornice, in addition to the laying of new slate abachins
