It is located on Via Gallelli, in the upper part of the northern area of the town, near Corso Umberto I.
Before being sold to the Municipality of Badolato, it belonged to the noble Gallelli family, who owned another large palace in the village. Around 1850, they built a beautiful villa in Pietranera, halfway between the marina and the Borgo, which had medieval castle influences.
It is the only building in the town with two main entrances featuring magnificent granite portals. In the lower northern part, it overlooks Via Progresso. After the purchase, in the early 1980s, the Municipality restored and transformed it for cultural purposes. Today, it is used for exhibitions, displays, and meetings.
Currently, the municipal administrators, with the aim of further enhancing the property to promote the cultural and tourist development of the Borgo, are planning new areas of intervention. They are also considering the opportunity to entrust its management to an existing associative organization in the village, which has the experience and capability to operate in such an important field.
