Palazzo Carciotti, an imposing building built at the end of the eighteenth century in the neoclassical style, is located in the centre of Trieste, at the beginning of the Canal Grande near the sea and is one of the city's most important buildings. The complex, currently being renovated by the municipal authorities, will be used for offices and homes. The building is ideally suited for redevelopment in a hotel, conference centre or prestigious offices.
The property complex has a rectangular plan, with the short side overlooking the sea along the length of the Canal Grande. The building, which housed the first offices of the Assicurazioni Generali insurance company in 1831, has five floors above ground, for a total surface of 9,784 m². The top floor of the building has a majestic copper covered dome, decorated with a Napoleonic eagle on the tip. At the end of the redevelopment work the municipal authorities will decide the use for the complex, which for its historical merit, would make for a fine luxury hotel.
The property is located in the centre of Trieste (204,590 inhabitants), which is the capital of the province and of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. The main access to the building is on Riva Tre Novembre, facing the sea, in an area with many monuments, museums, hotels and the main offices of many significant companies, such as Assicurazioni Generali. The city’s port is the largest and most important in Italy and also one of Europe’s most important ports. Trieste is linked to the A-4 motorway (serenissima) through the 13 Sistiana-Padriciano motorway junction and it is linked to the European routes E70, E61 and E751. The highways that connect the A4 motorway to Trieste, and the border crossings with Slovenia, are called the Trieste road system. The city is connected to the Venezia-Trieste, Udine-Trieste railway lines and to the Transalpine line.
