PALAZZO FASCIE: ARTISTIC AND CULTURAL CENTRE

Palazzo Fascie stands out among the houses in Corso Colombo, with its twentieth century reddish façade and unique crenelated tower. Bequeathed to the city by the Knight Vincenzo Fascie “with the purpose of bringing advantages to the industry, wellbeing and progress of my hometown”

Palazzo Fascie today is the heartbeat of the city’s cultural activities, a place hosting history, memory and culture of Sestri Levante.

BuilT at the beginning of the 20th century (1903-1904), designed by the engineer Questa. The palace was inspired by Gino Coppedé and its MackKenzie Castle in Genoa. The tower, completely different from the surrounding context, stands out and represents a symbol of the city’s culture. Its splendour, together with the façade’s wealth, contrasts with the simple interior.

Palazzo Fascie Rossi has become the reference point for the cultural promotion of the city.  The premises host every year different events: classical music concerts, conferences about cultural themes, encounters with local authors, exhibitions recalling the origins of the city, artistic and cultural workshops for children and teenagers. Palazzo Fascie includes the MuSel – Archaeological Museum of the City of Sestri Levante, the Historical Archive, the Public Library System, and the Tourist Office – IAT.
