La Casa y la Bodega Pelanconi
— El Pueblo de Los Angeles —
The Pelanconi House changed hands four times until 1871, when it and the winery were purchased by Antonio Pelanconi from whom the house is named. In 1866, Penanconi, who came from the Lombardo region of Italy, married Isabel Ramírez, a daughter of Juan Ramírez, who owned much of what is now Olvera Street. In 1877, Pelanconi turned over the winery operation to his partner, Giacomo Tononi, and dies two years later. Isabel married Tononi in 1881. The Pelanconi Warehouse was built in 1910 by Lorenzo Pelanconi (son of Antonio and Isabel) and his mother for the storage of their wine.
Señora Consuelo Castillo de Bonzo took over the Pelanconi House for her restaurant, Casa de La Golondrina, in 1930. She removed the rear
La Bodega Pelanconi, y detrás de ella la Casa Pelanconi, son un recuerdo de la activa comunidad vinatera del área, que se remonta hasta mediados del siglo 19. La Casa Pelanconi fue construida por el vinatero italiano Giuseppi Covaccichi entre 1855-1857, y es la casa de ladrillo horneado más antigua de Los Ángeles que todavía se encuentra en pie. Covaccichi y su socio, Guiseppi Gazzo, eran los propietarios de una vinatería que se localizaba enfrente de la Calle Olvera.
La Casa Pelanconi cambió cuatro veces de manos hasta 1871, cuando esta y la vinatería fueron compradas por Antonio Pelanconi, por el cual se dio el nombre a la casa. En 1866, Pelanconi, quien venía de la región de Lombardía en Italia, se casó con Isabel Ramírez, la hija de Juan Ramírez, quien era el propietario de gran parte de lo que es en actualidad la Calle Olvera. En 1877, Pelanconi cedió la operación de la vinatería a su socio, Giacomo Tononi, y falleció dos años mas tarde. Isabel se casó con Tononi en 1881. La Bodega Pelanconi fue construida en 1910 por Lorenzo Pelanconi (hijo de Antonio y Isabel) y su madre, para el almacenamiento de su vino.
En 1930, la Señora Consuelo Castillo de Bonzo se hizo cargo

Antonio Pelanconi, a native of Gordona, Lombardia, arrived in Los Angeles in 1853. After trying other trades he associated himself with Gazzo and learned the wine-making business. He married Isabel Ramirez, whose father Juan owned a large part of what is now Olvera Street. Antonio purchased the building in 1871 and he and his wife and children lived there until his death in 1879. Antonio sold the winery to his partner Giuseppe Tononi in 1877 and in 1881 Tononi married Isabel, thus preserving the family heritage. Antonio and Isabel’s oldest son Lorenzo became involved in wine-making, and after Tononi died, Lorenzo took over the business.(Submitted on January 22, 2021.)
