Palazzo Alliata di Villafranca



Pallazzo Alliata di Villafranca was originally an extension of a 16th-century building belonging to the Beccadelli family of Bologna, from which the square where the Palazzo is located, Piazza Bologni, takes its name. The building, owned by the Alliata family, was restored in the mid-18th century, with the participation of several famous architects of the time, in addition to the sculptor, Serpotta, who took care of the stuccoes, and the painter, Serenario, who created the frescoes. The Palazzo houses a remarkable art collection which includes the famous Crucifixion by Antoon Van Dyck, a Flemish painter, the two large canvases by Matthias Stom, The stoning of St. Stephen and the Tribute money, two works by Pietro d’Asaro and family portraits on display in the Salone dei Musici.
