The building is located along Via di San Basilio, at its intersection with Piazza Bernini, named after the palace of the same name.
In the beginning, the square hosted the Flora Circus, floral games to celebrate the beginning of spring. In the late 19th and early 20th century, the hollow that characterised the square took the shape of a modern urban centre, becoming one of the city’s focal points.
The property on Via di San Basilio consists of two complexes, one leaning against the other, which differ in terms of the colour of the façade, architecture and historical origin.
Before proceeding with the restoration work, Vivenda took samples of the plaster, which were analysed in the laboratory using an electrical microscope in a polished section. The analysis made it possible to define the composition and original colouring of the plaster and to proceed, in agreement with the superintendency, to make verisimilar colour shade choices.
The condition of the insulated and waterproofed roofing was also checked. In a second step, Vivenda dismantled the pre-existing roofing tiles, pantiles and insulation layer and replaced them with those of antiquated material.
In the façades, in order to provide greater protection, a flashing of ramps was inserted under the slates around the entire perimeter of the building with the function of double rainwater drainage. Detached or highly deteriorated plaster was stripped and restored with the previous material.
