Today and tomorrow are #RolliDays in Genoa. The city’s grand palaces, mostly dating to the 16th and 17th centuries, are open to the public.
The palazzi dei Rolli, as they are known, were (and in some cases still are) owned by the city’s noble/wealthiest families. When important visitors came to the Republic, they were hosted at one of the palaces (chosen through a lottery system). Later, the palaces hosted famous and/or wealthy travelers stopping in Genoa during their Grand Tour.
These are pictures of Palazzo Nicolosio Lomellino, still privately owned. I wonder if they need a cook/scullery maid? 🙋🏻♀️😁
