The Story from 1865
The building, wanted by countess Giulia Brunas Serra in Lucchesi Palli, was completed in 1865 according to a project by architect Semeraro (the same architect who designed Galleria Principe Umberto in Naples).
The entire building was used at first as a hotel and named “HOTEL BRISTOL”. In 1917, because of the first world’s war, the influx of tourists decreased (rumour had it that also St. Teresa was a guest of the hotel because she was waiting to be visited by the famous doctor Cardarelli), and the hotel was converted to a civil residence.
