Palazzo Vecchiarelli at Via dei Vecchiarelli entrance of Palazzo Vecchiarelli at Via dei Vecchiarelli, Near <a href= Palazzo was built by a Curia-member, Mariano Vecchiarelli da Rieti, in the epoch of Gregory XIII. Later it was inhabited by a future pope Innocent XII Pignatelli.

This large late Renaissance building was most likely designed by Bartolomeo Ammannati, a Florentine sculptor and architect who often worked in Rome, employed by popes and families who came from Tuscany. It does not attract a lot of attention, even though it has one of the first and most elegant Roman loggias.

In front of the palace, on Via dei Coronari #122/123 is a 16th century building popularly named Casa di Raffaello (House of Raphael), but there is no any proof that it has any relation to the great artist.
