Palazzo Sacchetti, a pearl of the late Renaissance in the heart of Rome

Palazzo Sacchetti is one of the finest late Renaissance buildings in Rome. Its construction was carried out in 1542 on a project by Sangallo, the architect of the Palazzo Farnese and coadjutor of Raffaello in the construction of the Basilica of Saint Peter. Sangallo built it for himself, dedicating the last years of his life to making it the “perfect building”. In 1608 it was purchased by the Archbishop of Naples, who built the chapel frescoed by Agostino Ciampelli. Later, in the second half of the 17th century, it was purchased by the Marquis Sacchetti of Florence.
