The seventh {lands without the Flaminian Gate, commonly
called La Porta del Popolo, The plan of this building was
designed by Jacomo Barozzi da Vignola, A, D. 1553, during
the pontificate of Julius III. The name os the Palace is
Vigna di Papa Giulio III. The plate represents a part of
the front as somewhat projecting.
The eight!/ was erefited by P. Dominico Pacanelli da
Faenza, the mathematician, for Cardinal Alesander, A. D.
1585. This edisice is in the ward commonly called Rione di
Monti, and fronts the Forum or La Piazza de Apostoli.
The ninth is the Palace of the Torrian family, commonly
called SSri di Torres, built by Pirro Ligorio for a Neapolitan
nobleman, A. D. 1560. This edisice {lands in the Circus
where games were celebrated, it is now called La Piazza
Navona. To the merit of Pirro Ligorio every one bears am-
ple testimony, who professes any knowledge of Architecture,
and of the arts connected with it, or makes any pretensions
to antiquarian researches.
I have exhibited these specimens for the benefit of young
students, which they may imitate with equal pleasure and ad-
vantage, either by varying them in some particulars, or copy-
ing from them in others. Different tastes will of course ap-
prove different models: by an Englishman it has been deemed
most proper to seleCt those, which he apprehended would suit
belt the English manners. We here conclude our account os
private edifices.
