The first confirmed attestation of the historical building, originally known as “Casa Ghigi”, dates back to the late 16th century.
The state of conservation of the property is sufficient as it requires maintenance and technological modernisation. The urban complex, used as the headquarters of the municipal registry offices for decades, is currently lacking the features necessary for this original purpose, which is why the municipality of Ravenna began transfer of the aforementioned institutional activities to another location (a new office complex at Via Berlinguer 58) some time ago.
The real-estate complex, of recognised historical and artistic interest since it is included in the list of properties subject to notification pursuant to Italian Law 364/2009, has been declared of cultural interest pursuant to Article 10, paragraphs 1 and 12 of Italian Legislative Decree no. 42 of 22 January 2004, and therefore remains subject to all the protection provisions contained in the aforementioned Legislative Decree (Provision for the declaration of cultural interest no. 2953 of 18.03.2013).
