The first traces in Eboli of the rich and noble Cesareo family, originally from Montecorvino Rovella (SA), date back to 1613. King Alfonso II of Aragon, in 1494, to reward and thank Cesare, a member of that family who had helped the king Alfonso I when he was besieged in the prison of Montecorvino, he attributed the Baron title to the Cesareo family. In the eighteenth century, following the marriage between lawyer Gerardo Romano and Marianna Cesareo, the family joined their surname with Romano. Two components of this strain asked to become priests, five others were mayors of Eboli; the family owns a Chapel with burial in the church of St. Francis of Assisi, purchased in 1755, dedicated to Saint Lucia. In the cadastre from 1753 we read: "Don Crescenzo Cesario, noble; Maria Antonia, daughter; Don Nicholas, priest ... Lives in palace house, located in the parish of S.Eustachio. He owns houses, lands, olive groves ... 450 sheep, 200 goats, 50 buffaloes ".

The Mansion of the Romano Cesareo is on Largo degli Angioli, a street named after the Ebolitan poet from '700. The body of the building, of medieval origin, despite the changes occurring during the Renaissance, remains, with its decorations on the baroque facades, the stucco framing the windows and floral motif featuring wrought iron railing balconies. Inside you you can admire the remarkable and majestic elliptical staircase with two flights of semicircular shape, resting on vaults held up by square pillars, reminiscent of some of the interventions of Sanfelice in Naples. In a bezel of the ladder is painted the coat of arms of the family. The building entirely occupies Via G. Vacca and via G. Conti. On the front of the building there is a small shrine depicting the Nativity. On the back of the building you can admire the warm colors and enjoy the intense scents of a beautiful garden, full of citrus plants and trees.
