Palazzo Bocchi was built for Achille Bocchi, a famous humanist, in 1545. It was designed by Vignola, who as well as being a very capable artist, also studied the works of Vitruvio, and was a great theorist and technician. Many beautiful 16th-century buildings by this man can be found all over Italy. The rooms on the ground floor are decorated with paintings by Prospero Fontana, a follower of Pierin de Vaga, through whom he felt the influence of Raphael, Michelangelo, and Tibaldi.
