1585 masterpiece by Giacomo Della Porta (1533/1602) for Ottaviano Serlupi Crescenzi
It was sold in 1744 to the Ruspoli family and in 1800 to the Lovatelli family
In the COURTYARD “Sarcophagus with two seasons at the sides and woman with scroll in the center” of the second half of the third century AD
“The most noble example of urban Roman architecture from the second half of the 16th century, the most classic” (Wart Arslan)
It is home to the so-called OSSERVATORIO POLITICO (Political Observatory), an institution of “political culture” that is supposed to promote “activities aimed at the formation of the new ruling class and the development of government programs for the social, economic and institutional modernization” but which is in fact another totally useless Italian institution, created for the use and the consumption of the caste of Italian politicians
