PALLAVICINI PALACE in BOLOGNA
Palazzo Pallavicini is a beautiful building of the fifteenth century in Bologna, several times remodeled and renovated by various properties: from the Sala (1493) to Volta, the Marsili and then the counts Isolani, who in 1680 entrusted the task to the architect Paolo Canali, who realized the monumental staircase and the hall with a lantern ceiling, the highest in the city together with that of Palazzo Ranuzzi: in 1690 the rooms were lavishly decorated with paintings by Giovanni Antonio Burrini.
The palace was then the home of Marshal Gian Luca Pallavicini (Genoa, 1697-1773), leader and minister of the Habsburg Empire, who made it become the seat of a European court, offering scenarios of royal dignity to the guests. Among these the fourteen year old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on the evening of March 26, 1770 performed in a concert in the hall of the Burrini lit up for a party attended by the nobility of Bologna and the religious authorities. In the second half of 1700 the successor Giuseppe Pallavicini (1756-1818) promoted a series of restorations and renovations with stucco decorations by G. Rossi on the walls of the large rooms of the "Camerone" and the "Conviti", with candelabra à la greque. Various artists were involved from the pictorial point of view, among them the figure of the painters Filippo Pedrini, Serafino Barozzi and Flaminio Minozzi who decorated the dome of the room with a fresco.
Today the Palace is home to museum exhibitions and events.
