Biographical / Historical
Giuseppe Palladi immigrated to the United States in 1915 from Carpineti, Italy. After serving in World War I, he settled in the Baltimore area, founded Palladi Construction in 1920, and began building brick row houses on 30th street in Waverly. Palladi projects continued in the western section of the city, spanning Frederick Road, and into the Catonsville-Arbutus area of Baltimore County.
Giuseppe Palladi was forced to retire in 1963 after a stroke. Peter Palladi, his son who took over the company, died in 1965. In 1967, a top Palladi Construction superintendent was killed in a car crash. The company stopped its operations in early 1968, citing these tragedies among the reasons for its decision. Giuseppe Palladi died on August 18, 1974.
