And here we are at the end of our story.
You may be wondering how the story of the Count and his home ended.
In 1808 he is forced to sign the deed of sale of this building due to stormy financial events. The deed to Pasquale Papiani is an administrative document but the Count includes a sort of letter dedicated to the artists who made his enterprise possible with his precious contribution. This is how the document reads:
In praise of Mr. Felice Giani, Figurist and Painter, and Gaetano Bertolani Ornamental Painter, Mr. Cavaliere Milzetti bears witness to his esteem for these two famous artists who, thanks to him, have left an eternal memory of their skill.
Despite the continuous changes of ownership, we still breathe the same Neoclassical atmosphere of the time of the Count. It seems that time has stood still for this Palace.
The garden has changed a lot since the period in which the property was owned by the Milzettis: there is no longer a trace of old-fashioned living, its layout responds to the romantic taste widespread between the last years of the Eighteenth century and the mid-Nineteenth century.
When you leave here, remember Milzetti as a man of his time who achieved the longed-for immortality not with heroic deeds, but thanks to this beauty.
This house is his great feat: to you its memory, care and circulation.
