The buildinglies betweenVico della SaponeaandVia Umberto I, and has a remarkable architecture and history.It is in the oldgiudecca, on the site of the synagogue. More than likely it had already by 1495 been consecrated as thechurchofSanta Mariadell’Annunziata(St. Mary of the Annunciation). A few years later, in1589, amerchant fromBergamo(nowNorthern Italy),Marco Trono, enters the scene. He lived next door to the now empty church and he decided to acquire and renovate the buildings around his house to make his residence a little more palatial. He was also given permission to create a burial space within the chapel area.
ThePersonèfamily, after whom this building was named, enter the scene in 1591. Geronimo Personè and his brother Giovanni Marco created a trading company with Marco Trono, which was to last three years. And it was during that time, in 1592, that Marco Trono was given the permission to do much more work on the area.
