Next building after the church of S.Giovanni dei Fiorentini is a palace, which A.da Sangallo built for himself in times when Leo X gave an impulse to embellish this part of the Via Julia. Later the palace passed to Cosimo de'Medici who decorated it with the paintings glorifying his family and established here the Consulate of Tuscany; then the building was a property of Clarelli and now the Commune of Rome gave it to different offices. Near by stood a house where died F.Borromini by committing a suicide, and Palazzo del Collegio Bandinelli for the assistance to young studious Florentines.

Sangallo Medici Clarelli Palace (Palazzo), Via Giulia, rome
The original facade of the Sangallo Medici Clarelli Palace (Palazzo Sangallo Clarelli) is flanked by two ashlar bands, and the main entrance also has an ashlar cornice. On either side are large trussed windows covering those of the basement. The windows of the mezzanine have a simple cornice. Above these, and separated by a band are the five architrave windows of the piano nobile (the main storey) and the framed ones of the upper storey. Later on, the façade was extended on the left by another four windows along Sangallo’s original lines. A slightly rising passageway, which makes for a better perspective view, leads on to the portico with a Serliana and the courtyard with an exedra at the rear. A stairway on the right leads to the next floor, where there is a loggia above the portico.
