The Palazzo Farnese located in the medieval village of Caprarola was designed by Vignola and built between 1559 and 1575. It takes its pentagonal shape from the foundations of a fortress designed by Antonio da Sangollo. The frescoes are from the Zuccari Brothers and depict scenes from the Farnese Family.
