In the picture is the Palazzo della Carovana (also Palazzo dei Cavalieri) , a palace in Knights` Square. It was built in 1562–1564 by Giorgio Vasari for the headquarters of the Knights of St. Stephen. The façade is characterized by a complex scheme with sgraffitoes representing allegorical figures and zodiacal signs.
