Overview
More
The Palazzi dei Rolli is a group of palaces in Genoa, northern Italy. On July 13, 2006, forty-two of eighty subscribers to 'Palazzi dei Rolli' or rolls' palaces were entered by the special committee UNESCO meeting in Vilnius (Lithuania) between the members. About 10 million euro was spent on their restoration in the 1990s with the use of public and private capital. On January 20, 2007, a plaque was placed by UNESCO at the beginning of Via Garibaldi on the grounds that it inserts the description of Palazzi dei Rolli within the world heritage listing: The largest homes, various in shape and distribution, that were chosen at random in the lists (rolli) to host visits of state. The buildings, often built on sloping land, formed of a stepped atrium - courtyard - staircase - garden and rich interior decorations, express a singular social and economic identity and commencement of modern age urban architecture in Europe.

The three old mansions are definitely worth a visit. I personally liked the Palazzo Rosso the most. However, as my husband and i visited the 3 palazzi in the evening, we had only two hours before closing time. It would have been ok if we...More

There are a lot of UNESCO heritage palazzos in Genova, but Tursini and Bianco and Rosso were turned into museums with single ticket for access. They are wonderful, both considering their appearance and the art displayed inside. The fact that first 2 museums allows access...More

A guided visit to the Rolli palaces is the occasion to understand a bit better the spirit of the Genovesi "uomini diversi" (strange people) as Dante Aligheri called them

Several Palaces of former wealthy merchants and nobles line the Via Garibaldi and they really are palaces. The interiors are now a repository for art works, mostly religious but some of normal life scenes and some rooms retain the flavour of how they were originally...More

All three palazzi are worth seeing but we liked the fact that the Rosso wasn't just a gallery, as it showed rooms as they might have been lived in, in such grandeur and opulence, you really get a true idea of how others lived.
