ITS IMPRESSIVE FAÇADE CONCEALS THE INTIMATELY-SIZED GARDEN.
Behind the wrought-iron fencing stands proud the imposing Rattazzi villino. At its entrance façade, on Via Boncompagni, the smooth ash is dressed with a parament conferring a solemn aura to the building.
The succession of floors is marked out by elegant belt courses, featuring metopes and triglyphs below and palmettes above.
The shelves in the form of a human head that top the tympan of the windows on the first floor are an important feature. This detail disappears at the last floor, which has a more subdued style.
The building has two lateral wings which are slightly further back compared to the main façade and embellished with imaginative décor, while the front, towards the garden, becomes more subdued with a layout which is more similar to bow-windows and protects the court yard’s privacy.
While the exterior has maintained its original layout, the interior has changed radically. Over the past ten years, the five floors of the building have been used as high-level offices, with open spaces organised around the central court yard.
