This building was the home of the Conti Ginnasi-Poggiolini, as it is revealed by the coat-of-arms on the facades overlooking via Cavour and via Appia.
The building is constructed around two inner courtyards, one – which was meant for the servants and for the stables (visible from via Cavour number 65) – and the main one for the guests, which contains a fountain with a statue of Neptune. The palace underwent renovation works in the 18th century; to that period date the water paintings by Alessandro Della Nave and Antonio Villa, two prominent painters who decorated many noble homes of that time.
Today the building hosts offices and private homes.
