Palazzo Rasponi dalle Teste

Palazzo Rasponi dalle Teste stands out for its grandeur and impressive decorations. The construction of the palace began in the last decade of the 17th century by the will of Giovanni Rasponi –bishop of Forlì– and of his brother, Earl Giuseppe. The building was to emphasize the importance of the Rasponi family, one of the most important families of the whole Romagna who dominated the political and economic landscape of Ravenna between the 16th and 19th century. The façade of the building, richly decorated with classical and late mannerist elements, boasts a grand portal which frames the double height entrance hall and bears witness to the transition from Baroque to Rococo.
