Description

An angled, exterior view of the main facade of Palazzo Bentivoglio. Renaissance in style, the building is two stories tall with rusticated stones located at the structural elements of the building, such as the pillars of archways and windows, as well as the perimeter of the building. The windows are grouped in pairs of two. Between these groups are relief sculptural elements, specifically heraldic imagery. The windows of the lower level are barred. There is a group of people located in the facing left corner of the image.
