Palazzo Zevallos was built by Cosimo Fanzago for Giovanni Zevallos between 1637 and 1639. In 1653 it became the property of Giovanni Vandeneyen the merchant, and in 1688 it was bought by the Colonna family (then the princes of Stigliano). After being sold in 1931, it underwent various alterations so that only the main portal was left. Between 1898 and 1920 the building belonged to the Banca Commerciale Italiana and was restructured by Luigi Platania-he covered the courtyard with a decorated skylight. There are Pompei style eighteenth century frescoes by Giuseppe Cammarano and Gennaro Maldarelli, canvases by Francesco De Mura, and 'The Martyrdom of Saint Ursula': Caravaggio's last work.
