The building is in load-bearing masonry, with a pitched roof, and consists of three floors, as well as basement and attic. The description is completed by a small appurtenant backyard.
The ground floor is slightly raised with respect to the street front: access is from both Piazzetta del Sale with the main door, and from a secondary door of the inner courtyard. The upper floors are all served by a staircase for exclusive use, which is found in the entrance hall. The two floors above the ground floor, very similar to each other, were also used as offices.
The basement occupies about 1/3 of the building’s footprint. The attic floor, with access from the main staircase, is composed of 7 rooms and 2 services.
The complex was built starting in the 1950s, for residential use and has undergone several expansions in various stages and in subsequent periods.
The building is located in Pavia, a city south of Milan rich in art and culture, known for the Certosa di Pavia, a Renaissance monastic complex. The property is located in the historic centre, near the University of Pavia in an area of considerable historical and cultural importance characterised by a good supply of services and commercial establishments and buildings of historical and cultural importance, such as the Medieval Towers, Pavia Cathedral, the Civic Tower, and public offices such as the court. It is just 300 metres from the historic and central Piazza della Vittoria and 500 metres from the Visconti castle. The area is easily accessible both by car and on foot.
