This building probably used to be the biggest and most luxurious of the upper class residences in Paolisi. It takes its name from the two families that, respectively, built it at the beginning of the 20th century and own it nowadays. Its style is mainly neoclassical, but featuring Liberty decorations as well, and inspired several other constructions in town.
Unfortunately the building was severely damaged by the 1980 earthquake, and afterwards restored without any accuracy. In particular the uppermost part of the front got lost, together with the painted walls that characterized both the internal courtyard and the main rooms. But it is still preserving part of its majesty.
A marble on the front of the building reminds that this was the birthplace of Nicola Tirone, a local politician who left a good memory of himself.
