Built by Malpaga Family (they will give their name to the Rio next to the building), it was originally a two floors building. During the first years on the 20th Century the building has been bought by the Stern Family, art collectors and traders. They rebuilt the whole palace (bigger, 4 floor in total) using old parts and materials of the previous one. Then the new building has been enriched with pieces of art, sculptures, mosaics and architectural elements from other buildings. The result is remarkable, a collage of memories from many different eras. Now, after 2 years of meticulous restoration, Palazzo Stern is magnificent.
