Built by contractor John H. ("Jack") Slaten in 1951, this simple, contemporary home was bought by Liberace in 1966 and was his primary residence until 1974. Liberace remodeled the house extensively, and stylistically it is in harmony with the over-the-top Hollywood Regency style for which he is most well-known. Of the three Palm Springs homes owned and lived in by Liberace, Piazza di Liberace is the only one remaining which closely resembles its appearance at the time he owned it.

On September 10, 2019 the Class 1 Historic site nomination for the Piazza di Liberace was withdrawn by the owners.

In March of 2018, the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation board of directors assigned the task of writing the Class 1 Historic Site nomination of the Piazza di Liberace to board member Steven Keylon.
