- Large palazzo dating from the 1700s
- Plans available for its subdivision and restoration
- Set in the heart of the historic centre of Arpino
- Many antique fittings still remaining
- Antique floor tiles
- Original kitchen could be retained as a feature
- All utilities can readily be connected
- Roof terrace with panoramic views
However, many of the beautiful old features still remain and could be incorporated in the restoration: the grand high-ceilinged rooms, the spacious marble stairs, the grand street entrance with its stone crest above the great front door, the fašade of the building with its original stone balconies.
A particular feature of the palazzo is the original kitchen, still with all the antique fittings in working order. This is a rarity to find in such good condition as so often these fittings have been stripped out and sold.
Cellars of 35 sq.mt. and a small but charming roof terrace with panoramic views complete the features of this imposing property.
The palazzo was named after a notable priest and scholar, Luigi Ippoliti, who was born in the Civita area of Arpino, in the palazzo now known as the Palazzo Monsignor Ippoliti, on 14 January 1875. Even while still a child at school his intelligence, his clarity of thought, his dedication to his studies and his piety marked him apart from others and brought him to the attention of the local dignitaries of the Church. His schooling completed with distinction, Luigi Ippoliti entered the Church and in 1915 was nominated for the position of priest at the Church of Santa Maria in Civita, Arpino, where he initiated and pursued intensely many activities, not restricted solely to religious works, including the founding of an orphanage and the establishment of a military hospital where many soldiers suffering from malaria were nursed back to health during both the first and second World Wars. His excellence as a scholar remained evident in the various writings and treatises that he published. These include descriptions of life as a priest and various tributes to Arpino the town of his birth which he describes as "an oasis of peace and beauty". In 1936 he published "The Place of Birth of Marco Tullio Cicerone" (Cicero) to critical acclaim. He died in 1950 aged seventy five, greatly mourned by all who had known him, after a life of selfless service to others during which he also succeeded in raising international awareness of the many attributes of his beloved Arpino.
Floor plans have been drawn up and are available upon request showing how the palazzo could be subdivided into several separate apartments.
