Palazzo Costaguti is a historical building which dates back to the first half of the sixteenth century. Built for the noble prelate monsignor Costanzo Patrizi, it was sold to brothers Ascanio and Prospero Costaguti, whose heirs still maintain ownership of the palace and the noble title of Marquess. Powerful figures in their time, the Costaguti family was able to renovate the palace, commissioning highly acclaimed architects and painters from Rome. Following the canon of Renaissance architecture, the palace features a piano nobile (main noble floor) reached by a stately, marble staircase. The noble floor housed the main public rooms for receptions and parties as well as the master bedrooms. The piano nobile now occupies the Costaguti Experience, entirely accessible during your stay. The interiors feature some of the most famous painters of the late Renaissance and early Baroque who graced the walls and ceilings with works of art that can still be admired today. The Costaguti Experience boasts museum-grade frescoes by several masters of the time: the esteemed Cavalier d’Arpino, a painter that commanded Rome’s attention during the Baroque period. He was one of the early teachers of Caravaggio, Gaspard Poussin, and the brothers Taddeo and Federico Zuccari, innovators of Italy’s artistic heritage whose work can also be observed in the main living room with a fresco depicting the Allegories of the Months and the Seasons.
