Palazzo Bonaparte Ascoli Piceno
The Palazzo Bonaparte is situated in the Via dei Bonaparte. The palace is privately owned and cannot be visited by tourists.
History and Description
The Palazzo Bonaparte was built in the early 13th century. The name has nothing to do with the French emperor, but refers to an aristocratic family from Ascoli itself who would move to Tuscany in the 14th century.
As you can read on the frieze of the main entrance, the façade of Palazzo Bonaparte dates from the year 1507. On the frames of the two doors and the six windows there are bas-reliefs and other decorations. These depict the emblems of military units, as well as cupids, birds and fantastic animals.
