The Sforza Cesarini's Palace
Built on the same place of the ancient Colonna's palace it was restored in 1637 and 1647. The façade consists of three different styles decorating the windows and it resembles Barberini's Palace in Rome while the portal with two Tuscan columns surmounted by a balcony is like that of Chigi's Palace built following the Bernini's design.

The interior is decorated with paintings representing landscapes and the views of the palace itself and the surrounding landscape. The building tended to be at the same time a sign of power and of nobility. The square in front of it is simple and not urbanized.
