Palazzo Caetani stands at 32, Via delle Botteghe Oscure. It was built for Alessandro Mattei in the middle of the 16th Century in all probability by either Nanni di Baccio Bigi or Lippi. Before entering the possession of the Caetani (the dukes of Sermoneta and princes of Teano), it had belonged to many other families: for example, in the 17th Century, it was owned by the Negroni; then by the Durazzo family for a century; after that it became the property of several other families in succession. The three-floor palace has a large portal that dominates the late Renaissance façade. Inside there are two large courts, the first surrounded by columns and pillars, the other with a fountain formed by a sarcophagus and ancient sculptures.
