Piazza e Palazzo Branciforti 6 - Fine Art Produzioni

If you will, it is the center of the whole urban system commissioned by the founder Prince N. Placido Branciforti. Built in the span of fifty years with the use of craftsmen from Rome and Palermo, it was built under the direction of three master builders from Enna: Gianguzzo, Inglese and Parvati. It was the home of the Prince and his descendants, until 1842 when it was sold to Giovanni Calogero Li Destri, Count Bonsignore. With its atypical mole, it is the dominant building of the lower area of the town.
It is a two story square building with two floors, a courtyard, cistern and portal with ashlar and friezes of bas-relief plumes. If the court hosted different warehouses, the stairway corresponding to the portal leads to the two upper floors of the building, which were residence of the prince. The official rooms are decorated with large stuccos. The cellars were used as warehouses and places of detention.
