  • The finding of some notary deeds on the construction of Silvestri-Rivaldi Palace have shed new light on this important sixteenth-century compound. Indeed
  • these documents set the time-frame of the construction and of its building phases. The palace was built on 1542 but the original project was then enlarged on 1544 whereas the completion of the most part of the palace is dated 1547. Following this date
  • began the decoration of the building inside which was completed by the end of 1549
  • it consisted in excellent coffetting and wall painting of almost all the rooms of the main floor. From the original documents we have been able to review some bibliographic evidences from which it emerged the persons traditionally in charge of the construction of the palace. The documents confirmed that the preliminary project and the construction of the palace had been assigned to the Sangallo circle and that Antonio da Sangallo the Younger would have intervened to solve the problem of stairways added later on. Following his death
  • there is a report that Mario Maccaroni was working in the building site too. He was an architect and constructor
  • well introduced in the Farnese entourage as Sangallo and Silvestri
  • who would have completed the building
