When they knew how to build: from the Pacellis...




In 1922 the Pacelli family built this palace in Rome, just south of the Vatican (on the Via Innocenzo III). Here you can see the monti from their coat-of-arms on the facade. If you ever have to raise a family in Rome, this would be the ideal palace to buy a flat.

Pacelli? As in Papa Pacelli?

Yes, I think it might have been his older brother who had it built and owned the bldg. Anyways, yes, it's the same family.
