Palazzo Boncompagni was built during the first half of the 16th century, and, according to many experts, was probably designed by Vignola—the famous 16th century theorist, technician, and artist. Many of the rooms are decorated with 16th, 17th-and 18th-century frescoes, and the artists include Niccolò dell'Abate—a painter from Modena who was much influenced by Parmigiano and Primaticcio during his time in Bologna. The magnificent main entrance to the palazzo carries the coat of arms of Pope Gregorio XIII, who was born here by the name of Ugo Boncompagni.
