Via dei Baullari crosses the world-famous Campo de‘ Fiori to join Piazza Farnese.
The name derives from the manufacturers of suitcases and trunks who had their workshops in the area, and it is no coincidence that over the years it was also named Via dei Valigiari (i.e. suitcase sellers) and then Via dei Ferravecchi, the scrap metal sellers. After the First World War, however, it was named after the famous Battle of the Marne, and only in 1940 did it resume the name dei Baullari.
In 1517, Cardinal Alessandro Farnese (later to become Pope Paul III) widened and paved what had previously been a narrow, unpaved road in order to reach his residence in Piazza Farnese more comfortably. Further work was carried out in the late 19th century to open Corso Vittorio Emanuele II. On that occasion, the street was lowered by almost a metre.
An initial analysis carried out by Vivenda revealed deterioration of the façades of the building at the corner of Via dei Baullari and Campo de‘ Fiori.
After the work on the façades, all the damaged plastered areas were restored through a process of cleaning and consolidation. The damaged parts were reconstructed and the surfaces were painted with lime paint.
Stuccoes and string courses were cleaned and restored, as were the stone elements of cornices, windows and thresholds. The work was concluded with the overhaul of the roof tiles and the replacement of the eaves channels.
