Palazzo Biondi dates back to the 17th century and is situated in the Fermo, Marche region. It was originally built in the 17th century for the unification of two aristocratic local families, and was renovated in the second half of the 19th century by Giovan Battista Carducci, a famous architect from Fermo. It is one of the most important aristocratic palaces in the region, both because of its architecture and for its decor. It represents an autonomous unit according to the traditional structure of palaces, comprising stables, workshops, cellars, warehouse and kitchens for the palace in the basement and ground floor. On the first floor, there are halls and rooms which are wonderfully decorated with frames by Luigi Fontana and Palmaroli but also with frescos as seen in the mirror room, adorned with scenes painted by Luigi Cochetti and inspired to the epic poem Gerusalemme Liberata. The stunning palace, enriched by the wise touch of architect Carducci, has recently been renovated and constitutes a unique example of the beautiful artwork in Marche.
The palace is self-sufficient with a typical palatial layout: it has stables, cellars, storage rooms, large rooms used as kitchens and pantries, and small work-shops for palace utility on both the ground and mezzanine floors.
On the first floor, the piano nobile, the rooms are richly decorated with frescoes based on drawings by the painters Luigi Fontana, Palmaroli and the master Luigi Cochetti.
A large part of this outstanding building – a unique and unrepeatable example of beauty – has been carefully restored and converted into luxury apartments. It is difficult to find a restoration including such different settings: old working areas and the piano nobile have been properly and coherently brought back to life: poor rooms were creatively reformulated, while the grander ones reveal a closer philological accuracy.
Each wall, even those in the originally poor areas, shines by virtue of an accurate design: taste of symmetry and frontality predominate. This Palace looks like a rediscovered jewel to be delivered to the future and to every forth coming guest.
