- Palazzo Vidoni-Caffarelli was a palace which had been said that Faffaello Sanzio(1483-1520)'s design. Raffaello was a great painter in Rnaisance Era and also a architect.
Palazzo Vidoni-Caffarelli was heavyly influenced by Palazzo Caprini which was designed by Donato Bramante and the most important building of Late Renaissance Period. Almost every later palace, include Palazzo Vidoni-Caffarelli, either copied Palazzo Caprini's main ideas or was a variation on it.
Palazzo Vidoni-Caffarelli, same as Palazzo Caprini, building had only two floors, rusticated ground floor and piano nobile (the second floor is later addition) in spite of the common palace type in Renaissance Period which had rusticated ground floor and two other storys aboube it.
