A History of Merchants and Poets

In 1576, the Senate of the Republic of Genoa created a public roll of all the noble palaces in the city. Owners of these palaces were granted the honor of welcoming visiting diplomats, dignitaries and aristocrats to their homes. This unique model of hospitality was celebrated throughout Europe and is now available for our guests to sample. Explore two of Genoa’s ‘rolli’ and admire their breathtaking 16th-century architecture and interiors.

Uncover the city’s mercantile roots at the stunning Lomellino and Palazzo Negrone.
