Our voyage of discovery through Bergamo's historic homes continues with an ancient villa overlooking the valley, which won the admiration of a well-travelled author: Hermann Hesse.
Welcome to Palazzo Terzi, the home of a storied noble family that dominated the city's history for several centuries.
Built as many great Bergamo families were working to establish their reputations, the entrance to the palace is located in Piazzetta Terzi.
As you enter the building, you can see four putti representing the seasons created by Giovanni Antonio Sanz, one of many artists who worked on the house, decorating it with frescoes, plasterwork and canvases.
From the entrance hall, the columns lead to a terrace overlooking the garden, sweeping round towards the lower part of the city.
From the Mirror Room to the Soprarizzo Room, passing through the Red Room and the paintings depicting the Triumph of Juno, this historic home contains years of art and history, encapsulating the elegance and refinement of the noble way of life.
