CALZONE APARTMENT HOUSE

PALAZZINA CALZONE


1909/10 Filippo Galassi (1856/1920) for the printing industrialist Ettore Calzone

Interesting fa├žade with a mixture of Gothic and Art Nouveau motifs

It was an innovative use of reinforced concrete

It is attributed by some scholars to Vittorio Mascanzoni in the years 1902/03

In the ground floor there is the Irish Pub Trinity College

In Ettore Calzone's typography in Via della Lungara the first banknotes of the Kingdom of Italy were printed. The typography was a leader in production of prints with machines imported from America
