It is also often called the Palazzo di Desdemona, although what connection it has with the unfortunate wife of the insanely jealous Moor, no one seems to know.
I was photographing the palace the other day when I noticed something curious about the stone tracery of one of the two balconies on the second floor.
The 'wheel' of the tracery at the right end is turning in a different direction to its three neighbours. It is actually turning in the same direction as the 'wheels' on the first floor.
The palace now holds two mysteries for me.
