  • Built by Nicola (1040 -1065) for his son David. Designed to restore the glory of Anciente Rome. Later added a tower to control traffic to the Tiber. One of oldest examples of domestic dwellings.
  • The House of Krescenci is the remains of an 11th century tower. The Creptati family ran water mills on the Tiber, charged for travel or passage over the Emilio Bridge, today's Ponte Rotto (Broken Bridge), which is 100 metres from the building. At the top of the house is an inscription in Latin: "There was no vanity, but there was a desire to restore the ancient dignity of Rome." Looks a little funny, if you do not think how many temples and other ancient structures were destroyed. Be sure to pay attention to this millennial creation of medieval "masters."
