This palace, built in the middle of the 13th century was the residence of the Gianfigliazzi family until the end of the 18th century, and was the seat of the celebrated "Casino de' Nobili" (club of the aristocracy).  Through the years a number of famous personages and artists were guests in the dwelling palace of this illustrious family, among others: Alessandro Manzoni,Vittorio Alfieri and king Louis Buonaparte .
