Collicola Palazzo is the homonymous square.
The Collicola family came from the castle of Montesanto, his luck began with Taddeo Collicola, physician of Pope Urban VIII in the first half of the seventeenth century and grew in the following century. The lavish aristocratic building was built between 1717 and 1730, the Roman architect Sebastiano Cipriani, and was inhabited by wealthy Collicola until the extinction of the family. The Palace had over time illustrious guests like Charles of Bourbon (1734), Pope Pius VI (1782) and Carlo Emanuele IV King of Sardinia (1801). Estinti the Collicola, the building was purchased by the city of Spoleto in 1932; now houses the museum of visual arts Carandente already Civic Gallery of Modern Art.
The very sober façade is divided horizontally into three rows of windows that correspond to the inner planes. The rear elevation has suffered serious deterioration; original Italian garden survive only a few battered trees. The interior retains the main floor a series of rooms with painted wooden ceilings, and a magnificent gallery entirely decorated with exquisite eighteenth-century tempera. The original furnishings, which once adorned the palace has been entirely removed: included important works of painting and sculpture of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth century and a series of tapestries from the legacy of Christina of Sweden, currently under restoration .

What a beautiful corridor in the palace, I like the richly decorated vault and ornamental doors, fantastic play of light reflections, excellent management of light
regards Ryszard

Hello Silvio,
This is a perfectly framed view of the beautiful gallery with the elegantly painted ceiling. The light is cleverly handled and the diagonal lines of bright light on the floor are very eye-catching.
Kind regards,

ciao Silvio,
une très belle vue avec une bonne perspective et une bonne lumière.
Des détails de toute beauté.

Bonne soirée

Hello Silvio
Beautiful classical composition of the repetition of the arcade-corridor.
This one in the Palazzo Collicola is with a fascination rich decoration.
Excellent work

Hello Silvio,
Wow, this is an extraordinary beautiful hall.
Such a richly and very colourful decorated ceiling, walls, doors and columns.
Where the floor looks more 'normal' you solved this by the different light strips that provide nice patterns on the tiles.
Best regards, Paul

Ciao Silvio, molto buona immagine di questo corridore interessante, molto ben catturata in questa immagine bella, buona nitidezza, profondità, luce, colore e qualità. Ottimo lavoro perfettamente fatto, i miei complimenti il mio amico. Grazie per aver condiviso questo bel lavoro.

Buona sera e felice resto della settimana.
Tutto il meglio dal sud della Spagna.

Witaj Silvio!
Interesting interior.
Beautiful ceiling.
Good frame and colors.
Well done.
Good evening.

Hi Silvio,

I like the perspective created by bthe length of the corridor. The point of view is showing the details of the ceiling and of the pillars. It is clear and precise. Have a nice day.


Ciao Silvio,
Excellent take inside the long and beautifully decorated corridor.
The paintings get good light from the outside and the rays graphically "painted" the floor made a nice pattern.
Buona giornata,

Ciao Silvio,

beautiful corridor on this palace. Nice paintings in the ceiling. excellent composition, impressive depth, good sharpness. Superb light management.

Have a nice day


Ciao Silvio,
Amazing artwork on the walls. A lovely impressive place, perfectly taken in your image.


Hi Silvio
Wonderful capture consisting of repetitive arches and columns giving a smooth feeling of depth blended by subtle clarity and colours. The side lighting works wonder here to cast the long shadows amplifying the elements as an essential focal point. Excellent capture, Congrats
Best regards

Ciao caro Silvio,

Wow, you have used the light to great advantage to make light/shadow patterns on the corridor and also, to reveal the spectacular decorations on the roof.
I like your chosen aspect, which guides well and creates a fine sense of perspective.
A most beautiful place!

Have a great day,
Bev :-)

Magnifique décorations des portes au plafond, bonne profondeur, excellente et belle présentation
belle soirée

Ciao Silvio
che bellezza, dopo tanti borghi sparsi per il territorio umbro ci mostri una meraviglia del capoluogo.
Bella la prospettiva, meravigliosi gli affreschi.

Ciao Silvio,

Que beleza de interior. Que riqueza de pinturas e detalhes arquitetonicos. Belo trabalho para pouca luz ambiente.

Parabéns e grande abraço


Hello Silvio,
Another fabulous photo with arches. I love the colorful decorations and the play between shadow and light. I think I'll snatch it to my Arches theme.
