This is another building that has two names, either Palazzo Doria or Spinola Palace.
Angelo Spinola started building this Palace in 1558, and it wasn't until 1576, it was completed by his son Julius! Julius, excavated the rear hill, which allowed the garden and courtyard to be enlarged.
The building is now used as bank offices inside, and on the outside, still contains the frescoes of brother's Calvi, who are thought to have worked for them. There are frecoes in the Atrium of various members of the family dressed as Roman leaders.
I didn't go inside, heavy doors were shut, but since have read there are grotesque frescoes.
Address: 5 Garibaldi street, Genoa
