After the cotton boom in the late century20's , many wealthy families built villas and palaces in the still sandy landscape of the  ramleh area where is zezenia has always and still is one of Alexandria’s most salubrious residential districts. but Unfortunately most of these villas and palaces vanished to free space for large apartments and population areas which was a big loss for our history and Egyption Archaeological scenes. but Egypt never stop amazing us and always there is a new places to discover . 

This palace belongs to aziza fahmy one of the 3 children from the nobel family of  Mohamed Pasha Fahmy and It takes 11 minutes to take a walk around the palace , it is not a wide place but it is really incredible building . Sometimes the people call it Aisha Fahmy palace -Aziza’s sister- who rented the neighbouring villa  but it is non- existent which belonging to a baron his name was Alfred de Menasce so they are not related at all just misunderstand. But she visited her from time to time in her palace too. 

Actually this palace was a summer house designed on neoclassical style by Granato in the late 20’s or early 30’s and when i mention that the Architecter is an Italian that means there will be a great Architectural Masterpiece. Granato was known for his work in Cairo and also he was belonging to the Neo-renaissance school (Palladian design) which is a group of 19th century architectural revival styles which drew inspiration from a wide area of classicizing Italian modes. Under the broad designation Renaissance architecture 19th century architects and critics went too far from the architectural style which began in Itay specific in  Florence and the Centeral the early 15th century as an expression which they also included styles that can be identified as Mannerist or Baroque an architect styles. Self-applied style designations were rife in the mid- and later nineteenth century.

The divergent forms of Renaissance architecture in different pieces of Europe, specially in France and Italy, has added to the difficulty of indentifing and recognizing Neo-Renaissance architecture. A comparison between the breadth of its source material, such as the English Wollaton Hall , Italian Palazzo Pitti, the French Château de Chambord, and the Russian Palace of Facets—all deemed "Renaissance"—illustrates the variety of appearances the same architectural label can take. which was a revival of classical influencing the whole of Europe.

Now let’s move to the hill which rises about 16 ft (5 m) above the sea water level. The area of the palace surrounded by a classical fence, is 150,700 ft2 (14,000 m2 ) in palce is nearly to a square shape , the palace consists 3 floors:-
- the basement used as a kitchen and all other services 
-the first floor used as a reception which include the dining rooms and salons 
-the second floor is for the family living rooms and bedrooms 

The building suffered severe intentional damage in the 1990s in the course of a dispute between the inheritors and the government on the possession of the palace. It seemed that the objective of the damage was to cause collapse of the building in a short time.
