Palazzo Fioravanti, Via di Monserrato, rome
The design of the window pediments of Palazzo Farnese (alternately triangular or curved) set a pattern which was followed in Palazzo Fioravanti (and in many XIXth century neo-Renaissance buildings). The palace is named after the Fioravanti because it belonged to this family in 1748 when Giovanni Battista Nolli designed a very detailed map of Rome: the names Nolli gave in the legend to his map have become the official names by which art historians and detailed guide books identify many minor Roman buildings.
