The building was erected by Gregorio Ghislieri on the foundations of a fortified construction from the Middle Age, as indicated by the small tower on the south-eastern corner. The building complex overlooks a small square along via Pergolesi in front of Palazzo della Signoria and extends along via del Fortino until Mura Occidentali (Western Walls). The two rows of Renaissance windows are framed in stone and the frieze on the beautiful door lintel recites: <<Gregorius De Ysileriis 1492>>. A 16th-century wall with Baroque windows and door acts as filter between the square and the small courtyard of the building. Two masonry coats of arms which refer to Bishop Tommaso (1505) and his brother Giovanni, who died in 1500, are visible on the side along Via del Fortino. According to Canon Annibaldi, in the early 800, the painter Corrado Corradi from Cupra <<a glorious event from the Roman history in the former Ghislieri, now Scalamonti house>>.
