1886/88 Gaetano Koch (1849/1910) for the Marquis Francesco Saverio Lavaggi. Formerly known as Palazzo Lavaggi Pacelli belonging to the family of Pius XII Pacelli (1939/58)
It was converted into a hotel in 1956
The linear façade clearly inspired by the architecture of Antonio da Sangallo the Younger contrasts with the contemporary façade of the nearby Palazzo Vidoni by Francesco Settimj (active 1875/88) which is much more densely built. Both were built at the time of the opening of Corso Vittorio Emanuele II
