Qualche cenno sull'argomento:
Taken over some years ago by the Grande Oriente d’Italia (GOI) as the headquarters of the Masonic lodges in Cagliari, the building was originally built by the Sanjust di Teulada family. The traditional style is apparent with squared-off openings surmounted by frames and strips around the windows. The new building replaced the old building which had been the seat of the university established by Philip IV and later, from the 18th century, a military barracks and stable. One of the halls was also used as a public theatre. Following the collapse of some of the vaulted ceilings, it was finally abandoned in 1852 and was purchased to make room for the new building. The main façade on Piazza dell’Indipendenza is on two levels: the ground floor, simply plastered where you can see the windows and Roman arched portal framed by small stones; and the first floor where you can see a continuous frame on which windows open, surmounted by rectilinear cornices placed on shelves. The façade on Via Lamarmora has two raised floors over a basement covered with plastered horizontal strips. The higher floor continues the pattern of the first floor facing Piazza dell’Indipendenza, while the intermediate floor contains entrances framed by false ashlars.
