Overview

This majestic palazzo was built for the Fantuzzi family. They needed to have the entire portico knocked down in order to have it built. The building's magnificent fa├žade is made up of ashlar work and there are strong contrasts between the light and dark areas due to the patterns of stone slabs. These were organized by Formigine to give the building depth and perspective. Inside, there is a beautiful Baroque staircase which was built for the Canali in 1680. There are also some wonderful statues which were sculpted by Gabriello Brunelli and which are based on scenes from the myths of Atlanta.
