Immagine storica

The palace is located midway between the Spinola albergo and that of De Mari di Banchi family. Built in the 16th century on an earlie medieval building belonging to the Spinola family, it was included in the rolls from 1558 against the De Mari's name. Stefano De Mari, the person most frequently appearing in the bussolo, was a nobleman who often applied for the post of Doge, a position conferred upon him in 1663; he belonged to a family with business trade links with Spain and Naples.
