This week, our affiliating listing spotlight is taking you to Italy a special listing.


Giacomo Della Porta was one of the most important Italian architects and sculptors, who worked on many important buildings in Rome but mostly finished St. Peters Dome. Della Porta was influenced by and collaborated with Michelangelo, and after 1563 he carried out Michelangelos plans for the rebuilding of the Capitoline Hills open spaces by completing the facade and steps of Palazzo Senatorio, and the Cordonata Capitolina (the ramped steps up to the piazza del Campidoglio). The genial imprint of Giacomo della Porta on the project of Palazzo Albertoni Spinola is revealed firstly through the integration of the two units that enables the ancient Palazzetto to extend into the new construction seamlessly; second in the creation of view perspective from the entrance of the ancient building to Santa Maria in Campitelli Church, through the diagonal trend in the new courtyard of Palazzo; third with the enjoyment of the Palazzetto secret garden even from the new Palazzo first floor.
