"This house was filled with beautiful and rare Artworks by that nice spirit named Pietro Antonio Serpini; there should be many gentlemen like him in the cities, and, that way, Arts could flourish": these words were written in 1803 by Saviero Dalla Rosa to start his description of Palazzo Serpini in his "Catastico", and they perfectly introduce to this noble mansion which still constitutes a brilliant example of Italian art of the XVIIIth century.
The original structure of the place dates even back to the XVth century and was extended to the modern frame in the XVIIth century by the Serpini family; Palazzo Serpini Salvetti Paletta Dai Pré is still today a true masterpiece of the Veronese rococo, the late Baroque decorative style, a stunning property which catches the observer's breath for the absolute magnificence and abundancy of frescoes, statues, pictures which enrich its huge halls.
The main entrance to the place itself, a stunning, large door with a carved artwork in stone from the XVIIIth century embellished with flowers, leaves and fancy animals typical of that time, immediately discloses some of the prestige of the mansion, to be accessed through an inner yard, still paved with the original cotto tiles, which leads to a double staircase, entirely decorated by precious statues recalling scenes and characters of the Greek mythology made by Veronese artists in the XVIIth and XVIIIth century.
GH Luxury Estate is the RE agency chosen for the sale of the penthouse of the palace, a magnificent property more than 500 square meters wide, almost still entirely paved with the original "terrazzo veneziano", the ancient composite material floors typical of the noble mansions of that time. The rooms are imposing for their beauty and décor, rich in frescoes, plasters, pictures restored to the original colors and freshness thanks to a careful work committed in 2012 by the current owners of the mansion. Two huge pictures are particularly noteworthy, two works by Pietro Rotari, alleged to be the painter of the stunning ceiling of the house, entirely frescoed, too, and by Carlo Salis, both of them scholars of Antonio Balestra, a master of the Veronese painting school in the XVIIth century.
Currently serving as an exclusive meeting location, Palazzo Serpini stands out as a unique mansion where the genuine, precious Italian style of the XVIIth century meets all modern comforts; because of the absolute prestige and uniqueness of the property, every other information will be disclosed during a confidential conversation only.
