Architecture
The main structure of Castelluccio Palusse

A historic residence expertly restored to maintain the typical elements of the original architecture
The front of the building, which has three entrances as it did originally, has many beautiful features: all the windows on the same level have decorations in terracotta above them which recall the double lancet windows on the towers, at the same time there are string course cornices and some family crests of noble families linked to the Spinola family, also in terracotta.

"Castelluccio Palusse” is written in the main entrance where there is an acute curved arch with two cornices with floral designs made in plaster and columns with a Corinthian capital. On the recently restored door knobs of the main door you can see the name of “Pilade Mazza”, who owned the estate after the Spinola family. From the main door, which has a large triple lancet window above it, you reach the magnificent entrance hall, which is now used as the foyer. Here there is a beautiful staircase in terracotta painted in ivory enamel, which leads to the second floor.

While from the entrance door on the right hand side you go into the lounge area, renamed the Zodiac Room because of the artwork by noted local artist master Mario Marco Marroni commissioned by previous owners, the Fastelli family. All the works of art and the evocative fresco in the lounge area, where you can admire a trompe l’oeil painting of a view of Città della Pieve, are attributed to Marroni.
From the entrance door on the left hand side, you enter rooms leading to the dining hall, whose cleverly restored walls and ceiling have adornments in wood effect.
In the four corners of the dining hall there are also some basins resembling holy water stoups which bear the name Palusse and were probably used to serve wine. All of the doors and window frames are original and there are some stained-glass windows.
