The project of Bernardino Cantone

The project, commissioned by the Grimaldi family, bears the signature of Bernardino Cantone, a pupil of Galeazzo Alessi. Together with the road, the "Rolli System" was born: three rolls, called Rolli, which listed the families and assigned them a prestige. These Rollis were consulted to assign a visiting personality to a guest worthy of his rank through a system of assignment based on the drawing of lots of the guest.

The Grimaldi family, which pushed a lot for the realization of the project, bought three lots among those put on sale by the Republic of Genoa to build the largest palace in the street.
