Palazzo Incontri-Viti – landhuis van een koopman

  • Palazzo Incontri-Viti – landhuis van een koopman

    Dit indrukwekkende landhuis voelt als een privéwoning – en begon ooit als het huis van een veeleisende albaster-koopman wiens erfgenamen er nog altijd wonen. Giuseppe Viti (1816-60) reisde de wereld over om zijn koopwaar te presenteren, verkocht in India zijn albast aan de lokale radja en werd daarna, bizar genoeg, benoemd tot Emir van Nepal. De gevel van het landhuis wordt toegeschreven aan Ammannati, die aan het Palazzo Pitti in Florence werkte. De ene zaal is nog grootser dan de andere, versierd met kunst, porselein en albast, een herinnering aan het feit dat het paleis ooit toebehoorde aan één van de rijkste burgers van Volterra. Renaissancegebouwen zoals deze gaan verrassend goed op in de omgeving van de middeleeuwse huizen van Volterra. Na het verkennen van de patricische paleizen kun je bijkomen bij Le Cantine del Palazzo, de Etruskisch-Romeinse kelders onder het Palazzo Incontri-Viti, voor een drankje of een maaltijd, in een grotachtige setting met een Romeinse waterinstallatie ter decoratie.
