A PLACE WITH A SOUL
and deep roots in city history

A bit of history

This particular area of the city was a lower-class district that bordered ​​a community garden in the late 1800s . Today, this area is dedicated to the Botanical Garden and Herbarium of the University . The building is linked to the city's transformation, which can be seen in its architecture. In particular, Almarossa embodies the completion of the front of Via Irnerio, which began in 1889 and completed in the second half of the 20th century.

This refurbishing of the area at that time was a process of gentrification, where older and poor buildings were replaced with more prestigious ones. For instance, the beautiful building across the street from Almarossa, on the opposite side of the corner, is the Sanguinetti house, which is dated back to 1907.

The construction of Almarossa started in 1926 and continued for the following 2-3 years.
