Palazzo Carrega Cataldi

It has represented for more than four centuries with splendid authority a happy moment and a fortunate situation in the Genoese sixteenth century architecture. It is true that from the first decades of the eighteenth century, it supports the added elevation of one floor and the addition of a body on the area which was part of the garden, not deplorable interventions since they provided a remarkable decorative enrichment. It is however convenient to ideally behead it of one floor with the support of the plan by Rubens for a first reading of the façade which has two horizontal bands in superimposed orders – a robust continuous ashlar on the ground floor and Ionic pilaster strips in pink.
