Baroque creativity develops in the central part of the elevation.
The long balconies of the piano nobile (main floor) are embellished by elegant wrought iron railings with a classic round-bottomed shape; the cornices of the large windows are enriched by sculptures and allegories that recall abundance and wealth.
The recurring themes taken from Baroque iconography and widely documented in still life paintings include cornucopias, grapes and garlands. The latter differ from their previous depictions due to their dynamics that enhance the creative spirit of the period.
The most emblematic elements are the large corbels that support the protrusions. It is here that the engravers gave free rein to their imagination, drawing from the vast graphic repertoire of Baroque imagery.
In this way, masks and grotesques were created, modelled using local stone to depict animals and anthropomorphic elements with curious expressions that attract the eye of passers-by, rousing “wonder and amazement”.
