Don Francesco Marigliano del Monte, previous owner of Palazzo Marigliano, was a cavalry officer during the first World War. He was awarded the silver medal for military heroism on the Piave line. In the following years he became a military officer in London with intelligence functions. The Palazzo was gravely damaged during the war by three bombs and Don Francesco devoted himself to the restoration of his home. Giving up his compensation for war damage, he financed the reconstruction by offering a space in the Palazzo to two business men (a banker and an editor) to develop into the headquarter for Il Giornale, the famous newspaper around which most of the cultural publishing of the time gravitated.
