ECONOMO PALACE IN TRIESTE
Soprintendenza head offices are located at the first floor at Palazzo Economo in Trieste, one of the most prestigious buildings in town. At the second floor are situated Segretariato regionale per il Friuli Venezia Giulia offices.
Palazzo Economo’s project and construction was made in 1891 by architect Giovanni Scalamini on merchant Giovanni Economo’s request, when, after been elevated to baron of San Serff, wanted to confirm his social pre-eminence by building a palace that would indicate the acquired prestige. The palace is located in an isolated position in Piazza Libertà, giving it a representative position.
Economo’s residence has the typical features of merchant buildings of Trieste: the palace is located near the Rive with stocks at the principal floor, while offices are situated at the first one and the residential floor is at piano nobile. Bought in 1974 to be destined to the Soprintendenza head offices, noticeably damaged and ruined, was successively restored and adequate services and functions have been added.
