Palace History

The palace was built by Count Sormani Verri Andreani at the end of the 19th century to give it to his daughter Donna Carla on the occasion of her wedding. The garden of Biblioteca Sormani (formerly Sormani palace) and the area belonging to the palace were part of a single private park with the Guastalla college, as can be seen from the 1884 map below. The wing of the building that stretches along Via della Guastalla was damaged during the bombings of August 1943 and reconstructed in the following years. Today, the palace presents itself harmoniously in size and in the "eclectic" style, which was popular at that time. The bombings also heavily damaged the complex of the Sormani Palace. The section along Via Guastalla, used as a Civic Library, was rebuilt in 1956 by the architect Arrigo Arrighetti with shapes considered avant-garde at the time.
