Crowdfunding for post earthquake restoration

The Palazzo Farrattini is a XVI century architectural jewel designed by the famous Renaissance architect, Antonio Da Sangallo. As an ancestral Farrattini family home, it was inherited in 1985 by Ettore Farrattini Pojani. At that time the palazzo was in very poor condition as no maintenance was ever done for almost 60 years. With love and dedication, Ettore put all his efforts and resources in restoring, little by little, the first two floors of the building and gardens and turned it into a B&B and events venue, providing lifelong memories for many. Plans for continuous improvement and restoration of the mezzanine level and top floor were suddenly stopped by the destructive last year’s earthquakes in Umbria.

Although the epicenter was a distance from Amelia, the earthquakes were felt, damaging the walls and a section of the precious XVI c. frescos of the ballroom which suffered a detachment from the wall and risks being lost forever.

No financial support is considered from the government. The immediate need to restore and save the frescos and other sections of the building are the objectives of this crowdfunding. In addition, these damages have caused suspension of the B&B license and all special events by City Hall officials.

We hope you will consider this restoration project and gladly donate what you can to help preserve this very important historical and architectural monument and be able to come back or come for the first time to enjoy its beauty and its history.

With deep appreciation,

Amici di Palazzo Farrattini

Raccolta di fondi per i restauri post terremoto

Il Palazzo Farrattini è un gioiello dell’architettura del XVI secolo progettato dal famoso architetto Antonio da Sangallo.

Proprietà della famiglia Farrattini sin dalla sua costruzione, fu ereditato nel 1985 da Ettore Farrattini Pojani. A quel tempo il palazzo era in pessime condizioni in quanto nessuna manutenzione era stata fatta per più di 60 anni: con amore e dedizione Ettore ha messo tutti i suoi sforzi nel restauro dei primi due piani dell'edificio e il giardino per usarlo come B & B e sede di eventi: il programma di migliorare e di continuare nei mezzanini e all’ultimo piano sono stati improvvisamente bloccati dalle ultime forti scosse di terremoto.

Anche se lontano dall'epicentro, i terremoti sono stati fortemente avvertiti in Amelia e alcune crepe si sono aperte nelle murature: una parte dei preziosi affreschi del salone ha subito un distacco dal muro e rischia di essere persa per sempre.

Nessun aiuto finanziario è previsto al momento dal governo e la necessità immediata di ripristinare e salvare gli affreschi e le altre parti dell'edificio, come la sua manutenzione giornaliera sono l'oggetto di questo crowd funding anche perché il Comune di Amelia ha sospeso la licenza per il

B & B e l’apertura al pubblico per eventi fino alla conclusione dei lavori di restauro.

Ci auguriamo che vogliate partecipare con una donazione per ciò che vi è possibile per aiutare a preservare questo importante monumento e tornare o venire per la prima volta a godere della sua bellezza e della sua storia. Inoltre se poteste inoltrare questa richiesta di raccolta di fondi a vostri amici che potrebbero essere interessati a partecipare, ve ne saremo molto grati.

Con infiniti ringraziamenti

  • Ricordo la cortesia con cui mi ha concesso le foto del suo bellissimo palazzo per un saggio sul Palazzo Rivaldi-Silvestri di Roma, anch'esso opera sangallesca con forti consonanze a questo di Amelia. Spero che tutto vada bene! Un cordiale saluto, Alessandro Cremona
