Description

An exterior view of Casa Saraceni, looking towards the east. The lower level of the building forms a loggia with Corinthian columns. The column on the corner is square. The second level contains windows located equidistant from each other. The windows are surmounted with two small half-arches, reminiscent of mullioned windows, all of which are enclosed in a larger arch. The first window from the facing right is opened, while the third window has its cover drawn. There is a sign on the corner of the second story. The upper story has small windows.
