The name of the street derives from the Specchi family, owner of one of the palaces overlooking it. The best-known representative is certainly Alessandro Specchi, an architect who, among other works, realised the Porto di Ripetta along the Tiber.
Before intervening operationally, Vivenda proceeded with a preventive analysis of the foundation plaster of the elevations to detect crumbling and detached areas of the supporting masonry.
The intervention then included a phase of plaster removal with the resurfacing of the damaged surfaces and the completion of the same with levelling and painting.
This procedure is also applied to rusticated surfaces, an architectural cladding consisting of rusticated ashlars, which are particularly degraded throughout.
As a last resort, a thorough inspection was carried out on the cornices, stringcourses and window frames, in order to detect unsafe parts and secure them.
