  Palazzo Conte Federico

contefederico

Palermo is a very intimate and secret city, hiding many of its beauties. Walking in the historic centre full of contrasts, you come across beautiful squares and opulent restored buildings and in other very decadent and crumbling ones.
To fully understand what the beautiful mansions only suggest with their facades one must enter them.
You will be received by the owners, children of the ‘Leopards’, aristocrats and modern entrepreneurs at the same time.
 


Brief History

Palazzo Conte Federico is one of the oldest buildings in Palermo, built on Punic-Roman city walls which originally surrounded ancient Panormus.

The tower on the south side of the palace is one of the few remaining parts of the old city wall.
It dates back to the 12th century and is Arabic-Norman origin. Above the double-arched Norman windows can be seen the coat of arms of the imperial family of the Hohenstaufen, of the kingdom of Aragonia and the city of Palermo.

The Palazzo

In the course of the centuries Count Federico's palace has undergone several reconstructions. Because of this you can observe various architectural styles: High painted ceilings from the 14th century, baroque ceiling frescoes by Vito D'Anna and Gaspare Serenario, various sculptures and Marabitti's lion fountain from the 17th century as well as the grand stairway with the interior walls done by Marvuglia.
Count Federico's family, which can be followed back to the Staufen Emperor Friedrich II, has been living in this palace for centuries.
