During this period, a social and topographic structure is found that finds its ancient origin in medieval consortia and is already beginning to emerge in the previous century: the ” noble hotels “.
The hotels form a kind of sociopolitical alliance and common control of contiguous real estate properties. They are formed by individuals who abandon the original surname to employ, along with signs and privileges, that of the main family.
At the beginning of this century it is also established in the Palazzo di S. Giorgio, built by Simone Boccanegra as the seat of government, the house of S. Giorgio, a meeting of state creditors and a reference point of private interest that will replace the weak institutions public in the control of collective security.
