Camozzini Building is located near the old Roman Cardus road, which dates back to Roman Verona in 1st century AD.
Nowadays in the buildings basement the typical large stone blocks from Roman construction can still be seen.
These blocks were often reutilized during medieval construction, and the remains of a medieval open porch can be seen today from the internal courtyard of the building.
The present facade is from the 16th century in a sober classical style, with architectural lines in perfect harmony.
The lower parts of the large windows on the ground floor are of particular interest, with a ledge which is not very common in architecture of the time and in Verona can only be seen used on the Muselli building (Banca dItalia) in Cavour Avenue (Corso Cavour).
Two bright Portals or Arches with ornate keystones of masks enhance the facade at the Piano Nobile level. [show more...]
