Palazzo Ambrogio Di Negro

he palazzo Ambrogio Di Negro is located in a square, piazza Banchi, which for years was a meeting point for merchants and bankers of the old Republic of Genoa.In the XVI Century the need arose for new more expansive urban spaces to enhance the relationship between the type of building and urban configuration using solutions such as wider squares or straight roads, allowing the architectural perspective to be read in a greatly improved manner.The new construction was part of an urban rebuilding programme which involved converting portions of the urban fabric by demolishing two of the Di Negro loggias, widening via Ponte della Mercanzia and developing the new Stock Exchange
