Palazzo Spada - Rome


The Palazzo Spada was built in the 16th century. Its façade is richly decorated with statues depicting the most important figures of Roman history. Its 2 courtyards are particularly remarkable. The first is decorated with charming stuccowork and the second was built by Borrimini using a splendid effect of perspective. He positioned a series of columns of reducing height to give the impression that the gallery is longer than it actually is. Today the palace is home to the Spada Gallery and the Italian Council of State.
