The building is one of the most well-known Renaissance constructions in Lviv. It used  to be the residence of the Ambassador of the Venice Republic. The construction chronology includes the periods of the late 1580’s (by the architect Petro Shchaslyvyi), the seventeenth century, reconstructions of the nineteenth-twentieth centuries and restoration of 1936. The historic name “Massari House” is derived from the name of its old owner who served as the Ambassador of the Venice Republic in Lviv. Massari house is currently used as a residential building (2008).  
This building was erected in the fifteenth century, and its medieval vaults and ceilings have been preserved until the present day. In the nineteenth century it was significantly reconstructed and in its present condition it indicates the nature of the changes which occurred to the late medieval architecture of Lviv during the Revival styles period. The building displays the characteristic attributes of Gothics (planning structure and the vaults of the first floor) that were later complimented with the Revival styles motifs in the decoration of the second-fourth floors as a result of reconstructions of the second half of the nineteenth century.
