Italian palazzo (2006-05-077)

Palazzo is more broadly used in Italian than its English equivalent "palace". In Italy, a palazzo is a grand building of some architectural ambition that is the headquarters of a family of some renown or of an institution, or even what the English call a "block of flats". The worlds "palazzo" (Italian), "palace" (English and French) and the other similar worlds come from the name of the Palatine hill in Rome.
