This magnificent palace which began being built in 1521 to the plans of Andrea Formigine, owes its uniquness to the 177 heads that decorate the fa├žade, and led to the nickname "Palace of the Head." The stone heads are attributed to the work of Alfonso Lombardi and Nicola da Volterra. At one point, in the rooms on the ground floor, the Casino society, popular among famous names in the Arts and from the nobility, organized evenings dedicated to music and poetry, in which the poet Giacomo Leopardi took part.
