Palazzo Bonaparte (today Misciatelli)

Via del Corso. (Open Map)


Built in 1660 by Giovanni Antonio de Rossi for the D'Aste family, it was then acquired by the Rinucci family and in 1818 by Napoleon's mother, Letizia Ramolino. She lived here, after the fall of her son, until her death in 1836. 

The three storey palace has an elegant architecture with gable windows. It is characterized by a covered balcony on the first floor, one of the few still surviving, called "dice box", and by a high belvedere where you can read "Bonaparte".
