Maybe begun in 1512 by Donato Bramante (1444/1514) with the ground floor
Continued in the years 1515/19 maybe by Giulio Pippi aka Giulio Romano (1499/1546) or Raffaello Sanzio (Raphael) (1483/1520) for Giulio Alberini and leased to the Florentine bankers Bonaccorso Rucellai and Bernardo da Verrazzano
Completed in 1521 by Pietro Rosselli (c.1474/after 1531)
It was later called PALAZZO CICCIAPORCI
Heavily restored for the Calderai family in 1866 by Antonio Sarti (1797/1880)
After a restoration of the Studio Gigli that lasted two years, in 2009 the palace became the HEADQUARTERS OF THE GUCCI FASHION HOUSE
