“Giuseppe Rota built this house from the foundations, he decorated it and finished it in every detail in 1762.”This inscription under the central balcony reminds the visitor who was the creator of all this beauty.
The palace became very famous about 1830, when it was sold to the opera singer Rosmunda Pisaroni, who transformed it into her home and made it the “elegant drawing room” of Piacenza, receiving many of the leading artistic and cultural figures of the time.
The façade is three stories high, with windows enlivened with stucco decoration, masks and shells that take up in their sinuous lines the curves of the cornice marking the division between floors. The historian Ferdinando Arisi describes the outside of the palazzo: “The entrance in pink granite is a jewel of the roccoco, as is the balcony that encircles it and the spider’s web of wrought iron that forms an airy parapet ….”
The interior is laid out on the U plan typical of the palazzi of Piacenza. The entrance block is very interesting, made up of a portico with five openings, a loggia above, and opposite, the staircase with double opposing ramps, open to the courtyard.
Inside, the great hall or salone is certainly the room tht attracts most attention, with its complex and refined decoration. In the centre of the ceiling is the Fall of Phaeton, surrounded by a painted cornice, the work of Luigi Mussi (Piacenza 1694-1771).Twenty other paintings decorate the walls, among them the splendid still lifes with flowers, fruit and animals by Margherita Caffi.
The alcove, on the other hand, has stupendous stucco decoration; the small room has a double chandelier and a secret entrance.
