"Palazzo Mellini" submitted by RomeTour Editorial Team and last updated on Wednesday 4th May 2011
It is on the left of Chiesa di S.Marcello al Corso with the entrance from Via dell'Umilta. It was built in the 18th century by Tomaso De Marchis who embellished it with nice windows which represent a summary of baroque motifs for cardinal Mario Mellini on the original palace of Venetian cardinal Michiel, nephew of Paul II. It was for a long time a residence of the cardinals titular of the Chiesa di S.Marco.
In 1532 it was sold to the Salviati and at the beginning of the XVIIth century to the Cesi, before being acquired by the Mellini, so its full name is Palazzo Michiel Salviati Cesi Mellini. The redesign by Tommaso De Marchis gave it a very light-hearted appearance.
The radical restoration in the 19th century changed a lot the look of the palace. In the 30's of the 20th century was built a gallery connecting Palazzo Mellini and adjoining church.
