Tre Biano building

tre biano

(from Italian “tre piani” meaning “3 floors”? ) On Via Maka-Almukarama, Mogadishu. Seen here on Google maps.

I lived in an apartment here from 1986 to 1989. I would like to know more about the history of this building. Can you help? In the mid-80s it was owned by a family from Hargeysa, who lived on the ground floor (if I am correct). I think it was built sometime in the 1950s, but I may be wrong.
