Briganti Palace (M. Ridolfi)

Palazzo Briganti deserves a worthy position in the Terni "marked" by the pencil of Mario Ridolfi and Wolfgang Frankl. The two architects made extensive use of the typical pietrasponga -a porous limestone- of medieval Terni to encase their works, but when designing Palazzo Briganti a different solution was chosen, in sign of respect for the nearby historical church of San Pietro which had been built with that particular travertine extracted from the Marmore quarries.

At street level, the building, finally designed in 1962, takes into consideration the requirements of the client, the owner of a department store, and therefore presents a porch with glass surfaces on three sides.

On the higher levels, Ridolfi and Frankl experienced a new solution with a typical court construction with balconies and an upper floor with altane-covered terraces- which remind of the old buildings in Terni. Regarding the outside coating materials, there was no use of the pietra sponga, but in order to enliven the building, ceramics were used to highlight balconies and windows. Inside, we can see an admirable elliptical staircase, while the iron details, railings and door handles were created by the utmost skilled Master blacksmith Domenico Malagracci.
