Palazzo Giordano Apostoli: neo-gothic inspiration

Palazzo Giordano Apostoli is located in Sassari’s central Piazza d’Italia. It was built by will of Giuseppe Giordano Apostoli in 1877, in the area considered “the vestibule of the new bourgeois city” at the time; designed by engineer Giuseppe Pasquali, it was completed after his death by architect Luigi Fasoli, who was also entrusted with all decorative details.

Now the headquarters of a famous bank, the palace’s three floors are a triumph of neo-gothic style. The entrance portal is framed by two pairs of columns, while others support the large balcony on the main façade, which is decorated by Lombard bands and lesenes.
Inside, the rooms feature an opulent and grand style with stuccos and frescos. Despite the building changing owners, some of the most beautiful furniture that belonged to Giuseppe Giordano Apostoli – with his official coat of arms – can still be admired here.
One of the highlights is certainly the central staircase, dominated by a painting by Guglielmo Bilancioni with lavish ornaments: bronze female figures that hold lights and decorative motifs – like a Medieval-style bestiary.
