Palazzo Loredan Vendramin Calergi: Façade (detail)1500-04
Canal Grande, Venice
Corinthian columns, grooved on the first floor and smooth on the second, mark the façade, giving it a controlled plastic quality. Crowning the façade, over the trabeation, is a frieze decorated with a relief depicting eagles, unicorn, and shields with six roses, the symbol of the Loredan family.
