The Inghirami Palace
A family that has been a landmark
The building is owned by one of the most important families of Volterra. The Inghirami family, since the Middle Ages, has always been a point of reference in the political, cultural and religious life of the city. The building stands at the point where the tower houses that housed the members of that family were located. The current building is composed of various buildings, of which the main one was built in 1615 by Admiral Iacopo Inghirami based on a design by the architect Giovanni Battista Caccini. The interior preserves, among other things, the family archive and a collection of Etruscan urns found in Volterra. In the house are preserved many objects, also of important artistic value, which document the history of the family over the centuries.
The palace is a private property open occasionally.
