Description

The plastered facade, with a high stone plinth, is spread over three levels and consists of two parts which jut out with different profiles. On the left-hand side is the main entrance arch, which is off centre, while on the higher levels there are three misaligned rectangular windows without balcony ledges, all with stone frames. In the recess are two small oval openings and on the right-hand side of the facade is a secondary portal with a round arch.  It is flanked by rectangular windows surmounted by two monuments dedicated to the memory of the doctors Vincenzo and Domenico Tanturri. In line with the portal in the second order, is a balcony supported by corbels and decorated with a wrought iron railing; flanked by two oval windows. The balcony of the last level is in line with the lower one, but it is shorter and less deep than the lower one and with less decoration. In this section the openings are also finished by a simple stone frame.
Also worthy of note are the triple lancet windows and lintels with carved jambs that open onto the side that overlooks Via de Angelis.

Historical Notes

The building is located at the corner of Via De Angelis which is part of the so-called "doughnut" - the circular route that has always been the heart of the village and which marks an important hub.
