The Taleb Palazzo in Amioun


Built for my great-great-great-great-great-grandfather Ibrahim Taleb Nabbout by Florentine architects and completed in 1860, financed by his brothers who were silk traders. Occupied by Ibrahim, then his son Assaad Beik Taleb (there is a frame of the "firman", the "Beik" title granted by the Ottoman), then by Assaad's son Nassim Beik Taleb, then Chafic, then daughters Laure and Evelynne Taleb,  then by Yvonne, Laure's only childŒ. Currently occupied by Edgar Taleb Khoury, son of Yvonne Taleb, great-grandson of Nassim Taleb.
