Giacomo Della Porta was one of the most important Italian architects and sculptors, who worked on many important buildings in Rome but mostly finished St. Peter’s Dome. Della Porta was inﬂuenced by and collaborated with Michelangelo, and after 1563 he carried out Michelangelo’s plans for the rebuilding of the Capitoline Hill’s open spaces by completing the facade and steps of Palazzo Senatorio, and the Cordonata Capitolina (the ramped steps up to the piazza del Campidoglio). The genial imprint of Giacomo della Porta on the project of Palazzo Albertoni Spinola is revealed ﬁrstly through the integration of the two units that enables the ancient Palazzetto to extend into the new construction seamlessly; second in the creation of view perspective from the entrance of the ancient building to Santa Maria in Campitelli Church, through the diagonal trend in the new courtyard of Palazzo; third with the enjoyment of the Palazzetto secret garden even from the new Palazzo ﬁrst ﬂoor.
The Palazzetto is composed by three independent but connected with each other luxury suites, each equipped with ﬁtness, wellness, and relaxation areas. The three residences share common parts located at the ground floor like lobby/security services, a small ofﬁce and a movie theatre for private screenings.
The residences may be accessed by several different entrances that permit an absolute privacy: either through the main monumental staircase, or from Capizucchi alley via from Capizucchi square, or from the entrance hall on the ground ﬂoor of the Palazzo using the spiral staircase that starts right at that entrance.
The Garden Suite is located on the ﬁrst ﬂoor of the Palazzetto. The unique private secret garden is the gem of the residence. The entrance is on the ﬁrst landing area of the monumental staircase. There is an other private entrance on the ground ﬂoor off the Capizucchi alley. On the ground ﬂoor there are the private gym and the wellness area of this suite.
The Ambassador and the Executive Suites are located on the second, and on the mezzanine floor of Palazzo. The suites are independend but connected. There are two entrances on the second landing of the monumental staircase and another private entrance from the ground floor where the gym and wellness are located as exclusive amenity for the suites. Large and stunning terraces are the main features of these suites. Both suites are directly connected with the breath-taking rooftop Terrace with its stunning 360 view over Rome on the roof of the Palazzo.
This masterpiece asset is full-filled from a small collection of six portrayed sculpted heads: one in the entrance hall past the courtyard and the other ﬁve over the monumental stairs, which were part of the collection of the Paluzzi Albertoni family – collectors of ancient artwork; and from various frescoes located in the Little Chapel, in the private gym of the Ambassador and Executive suite and in the small ofﬁce.
Total surface of 17,362 sq ft. including up to 11 bedrooms, 15.5 bathrooms, 3 kitchens, dining rooms, living rooms, lounges, private garden of 1852 sq ft; private terraces of 753 sq ft, a little chapel, a rooftop terrace with a garret of 2023 sq ft. and 4 private parking spaces at the courtyard of the Palazzo.
