Piazza Ordelaffi, City of Forlì
, Italy

The intervention encompasses the completion of the missing left side of Palazzo Paulucci-Piazza, which was symmetrically designed to the pre-existing portion. The façade was crowned by an imposing entablature. Especially interesting is the building interior, which was constructed with relatively fewer constraints, thus resulting more modern. Despite the strong historicism of the time, modern architecture characterized by the forms of the “Fascist style”, entered the renovated building, the penthouse floor, the Prefect apartment, announced by a massive shaped-jamb door featuring impressive bird’s beak mouldings and crowned by three fasces. The new sumptuous pieces of furniture by Italo Mancini witness of the historicist and art deco taste, are still visible today. The frescoes by Francesco Olivucci are not visible any longer, as they had been hidden because of their political meaning.
