The history of Terzi Family

The Terzi family has always been at the center of Bergamo’s history and are lived in the city since before the year 1000. Here, over time and throughout history, they became among the regents of the Municipality.
The most illustrious character of the family was Ottobono Terzi who was Captain of Gian Galeazzo Visconti. Other prominent figures of the family has been Giovanni Terzi. He followed the ecclesiastical career and participated in the Council of Trent.





The architecture of the building

Terzi Palace stands out for its original architecture which challenges numerous construction problems. First of all, the difficulty of erecting the palace on a site occupied by pre-existent Renaissance buildings.
Its location also complicated the development of the gardens. This didn’t prevent Terzi family from predispose a garden distributed over various levels over time.

  1. Oh man I am truly loving this wonderful post 🙂 The Terzi Palace is a place that I would love to visit and walk through. I grew up in Charleston SC and visited many of the historic homes a d plantations there and there is something about historical places that calls to me. This is the perfect place for me and will have to try and get there soon 🙂

  2. It never ceases to amaze me, all of the details and paintings and gold and wood carving etc all over Europe. The level of craftsmanship is something you see so little of these days!

  3. Terzi Palace would be a great place to travel over there in Italy. I like history and classic architecture which carry stories, and your pictures are impressive

  4. Wow! I actually haven’t heard of this place before. I really need to visit Italy once again to try and experience all of the history that has happened there. Looks like an incredible destination.

  5. I’m glad I amazed! I love to tell the least “popular” places in Europe, those that come out of the usual destinations to suggest ideas for a future non-convention holiday, but equally full of wonder.
    However I take this opportunity to invite, to those interested,
    to sign up to the newsletter that will start from March, inside there are things you will not find on the blog such as exclusive freebies, free services and a monthly giveaway that will win an award that can be received directly at home! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🤎🖤🤍

  6. I did some traveling in Europe about 10 years ago and the work that went their buildings, furniture, etc. is amazing! The style is so different in that part of the world – it’s beautiful to see as a traveler. I can’t wait to go back, hopefully I’ll be able to take a peek at this place!
