The well preserved indoor spaces are a glorious tribute to the history of Arezzo, from its origins to the present day. We can find evidence of this through the most visible details, including some beautiful frescoes that decorate the rooms, and in more "hidden" structural parts.

The hall warmly and brightly embraces us, with terracotta floors and beautiful coffered ceilings. Here we find an ancient fireplace with a carved coat of arms on the mantelpiece.

As we move toward the kitchen, the visitor cannot help but be captivated by the depiction of a madonna on a throne with baby Jesus to whom the Virgin Mary offers flowers, sheltered by a niche carved in the wall.

Another feeling of awe is experienced upon entering the master bedroom with adorned and colorful walls that enhance the spaces.

This property has a long history, with very ancient roots and passages of property between important families such as the Marsupini, the Barbolani and the Redi.

Already in Etruscan-Roman times where Via Bicchierala is now, there were dwellings, we can tell by the masonry and the vaults of the cellars. In the period from 1000 to 1200 the facade of the house was born on the pre-existing foundations.

In the three centuries from 1200 to 1500 the palace, like others on the street, was a property of the Marsupini family who lived there, more precisely in the house that corners Via Cesalpino (formerly Banca d'Italia). The most influential personage was Carlo Marsupini who held the position of Secretary of the Florentine Republic in 1400.

It was in the years between 1400 and 1450 that a niche in the apartment was frescoed with a madonna on a throne with baby Jesus to whom the madonna offers flowers.

In the arch of the niche one can notice the lamb of God and, in the right eavesdrop, St. Agatha holding the pincers that hold an uprooted tooth. The left epaulet was probably destroyed as a result of work, and thus lost forever.

The similarity with other representations suggest the "Master of Pieve a Sietina" or "Lorentino di Andrea cuoiaio" a follower of Piero della Francesca with whom he worked in San Francesco in Arezzo, or even his son Angelo. All three were active in the period and places mentioned.

After 1500, but more likely around 1600 a "Barbolani," an Arezzo nobleman and "Bali" commander of the Medici fortress in Arezzo, lived in the house. The coat of arms carved on the chamber fireplace is of the Barbolani family.

In the late 1600s the house passed to the Redi family; At that time one of the most illustrious families in the city. The decoration of the room circa 1750 dates from this period.

The occasion as can be seen from the panels above the doors is the birth of a male heir. The panels with landscapes, on the other hand, suggest properties that belonged to the family.

The decorations in the room date from the period of Napoleonic occupation and bear the neoclassical influence. They consist of allegories and muses painted in lime, partly on a fresh, partly dry background.

The coffered ceilings are from different periods. The rooms facing the street are undoubtedly "sixteenth-century," as is the exterior stone string-course cornice. While the window frames also made of stone date from the 1400s, and the coffered ceiling of the interior rooms is also 15th-century.

The stone entrance portal to the apartment is from the 1500s while the stone capitals and corbels of the staircase are from the 1400s.

The stone corbels of the street-front end are from the 1500s. Of good hand and quite entirely similar to those found in the first entrance to the municipal palace of Arezzo.
