The monumental heritage building dates back to the XVI century and about half of the ‘500 it was the noble Castriota family’s residence and specifically the marques Atripalda Alfonso Castriota Scanderberger and his wife Cassandras’ residence. In the XVII century Palazzo Spinelli di Fuscaldo was occupied by famous jurists’ family: the Marciani who were in fact Vicarias’ judges. In 1647 in the Neapolitan Republic the building was occupied by Masaniello. Tommaso Aniello of Amalfi, better known as Masaniello (Naples, 29 June 1620 – 16 July 1647) was the leading character of Neapolitan rebellion. In this period, exactly from 7th to 16th July in 1647, Naples’ population rose against Spanish Vice-regency fiscal pressure. In the XVIII century Spinelli di Fuscaldo family occupied the building and Giuseppe Spinelli become the archbishop of Naples. In this period, the building enjoyed an extraordinary artistic and cultural splendour.
