About Palace Isolani

Overlooking suggestive Santo Stefano Square (also known as the Square of the Seven Churches), Palazzo Isolani offers since centuries its porches to one of the most beautiful walks around Bologna. The Palace was built between 1451-55 by Pagno di Lapo Portigiani da Fiesole for the noble Isolani family, one of the most eminent in Bologna, in a style marking the transition between Gothic and Tuscan Renaissance. The façade is arranged on two orders separated by a string-course. The arcade with basket arches supported by Corinthian capitals is surmounted by a sequence of ogee one-light windows. But the architectural complex of whom Palazzo Isolani is the fulcrum, conceals many other treasures inside.
The eighteenth-century rooms of the ground floor, destined today to exclusive events, are richly painted and decorated with damask upholstery and decorated with paintings and furniture that are part of  the family’s heritage. The portraits of the Isolani family and the family of the King of Naples Gioacchino Murat, with which the Isolanis became related by marriage in the early nineteenth century, give a majestic solemnity to the location. Still property and run by the Isolanis descendants, counts Cavazza-Isolani, it’s the ideal seat for receptions, weddings, cocktail parties and gala dinners as well as conferences, business events, seminars, workshops and press conferences.
