A Cozy B&B in Rome
Our Bed and Breakfast situated in the heart of Rome near Piazza Navona counts with a long history. The suite belongs to a member of the ancient Marcello family, which goes back all the way to the Roman era.
The gens (latin name for family) Claudia-Marcella was a prominent family in ancient Rome and during the 7th Century became a leading player in Venetian history establishing itself as one of the most important aristocratic parentages and acquiring the title of Venetian Patricians – which was the apex of the Venetian peerage system and comparable to the status of Royal lineage.
The name Marcello comes from the fusion of the words “mare” and “cielo”, sea and sky, which appear as symbols in the family’s coat of arms: a golden wave depicted over a blue sky.
