Designed by Leon Battista Alberti in the 1440s for one of Florence’s richest families, this palazzo is arguably the first Renaissance building to rigorously mimic Roman forebearers – in this case, the Colosseum, with its Doric, Ionic and Corinthian pilasters. Note that the interior is not open to visitors.
