Palazzo CorpiWalking from Sishane to the Pera Palace Hotel on the left side is a very ornate 19th century mansion that was originally named Palazzo Corpi and built for the Corpi Genoese banking family. The building was designed by Giacome Leoni, an Italian architect for Ignazzio Corpi. It has a neoclassical exterior and the hallway inside has excellent frescoes over a grand stairway, and in the Great Hall there are mythological paintings that include those of Diana, Neptune and the Three Beauties. During most of the 20th century it was the American Consulate but after the horror of the 9/11 terrorist act the consulate was moved to Istinye and into a fortress like building. The Palazzo building has been earmarked to become a boutique hotel.
