The Palazzi dei Rolli is a group of palaces in Genoa, northern Italy. On July 13, 2006, forty-two of eighty subscribers to 'Palazzi dei Rolli' or rolls' palaces were entered by the special committee UNESCO meeting in Vilnius (Lithuania) between the members. About 10 million euro was spent on their restoration in the 1990s with the use of public and private capital. On January 20, 2007, a plaque was placed by UNESCO at the beginning of Via Garibaldi on the grounds that it inserts the description of Palazzi dei Rolli within the world heritage listing: The largest homes, various in shape and distribution, that were chosen at random in the lists (rolli) to host visits of state. The buildings, often built on sloping land, formed of a stepped atrium - courtyard - staircase - garden and rich interior decorations, express a singular social and economic identity and commencement of modern age urban architecture in Europe.

These are all magnificent amabassadorial residences -with the garandest mostly in one street, though many are dotted throughout the city. The city's Chamber of Commerce is one such palace and boasts a hall of mirrors that recalls Versailles, albeit on a smaller scale. Do a...More

Genoa was for well over a century a city of extraordinary wealth, coming largely from maritime trade. Those early plutocrats earned a place on the Rolli, like an early social register roll. And they built magnificent palazzi. For one price a visitor can see three...More

A ticket to the 3 main palazzi costs 9 euros. I'd suggest starting with the Palazzo Rossi. I literally had all 3 to myself when I visited in February and needed the 30 or more friendly staff I met en route to help me navigate...More

My husband and I spent the afternoon exploring this area during the Rolli Days in October. The place was crowded with locals and tourists. It was fascinating to see the palaces and mansions that the wealthy people lived in during the opulent days of Genova.

Was fortunate to visit on a weekend when all the rolli palaces were free so spent a very enjoyable few hours going from one to another. Each one had its one charm and was different styles

This UNESCO site was created by wealthy merchant families who used their villas to exhibit their prestige. Actually a collection of palaces including one of which has a cherub in its portico showing his bare behind to the rival neighbor's facade.

It seems that the reviews are about palazzo Rosso not Rolli. They are also located at different places on the map. Can someone clarify?
