"Palazzo Verospi, Rome" submitted by RomeTour Editorial Team and last updated on Friday 29th April 2011
It was built by G.Rainaldi and O.Longhi in 1611 for a Spanish Ferdinando De Verospe, who bought a house on this site in 1565. Inside is a gallery frescoed by F.Albani in 1617. Here a collection of ancient sculptures was preserved, distributed on the stairs and in the halls, but it was lost after the palace was purchased by the Torlonia in the beginning of the 19th century, and later, when it was occupied by Banco Marignoli. At present Palazzo Verospi houses the Bank of Credito Italiano, for which needs the courtyard was covered and turned into a hall. A memorial tablet on the facade reminds about a sojourn of B.P.Shelley in this palace.
