Palazzo Pompei, Verona

From the slightly wider central bay a splendid lunette-vaulted entrance hall leads through to a courtyard, bordered on three sides by arcades, carried rather uncanonically by free-standing columns, with an upper storey where tall arched windows with massive rough-hewn keystones repeat the shape of the more refined windows of the façade.

The photo shows the courtyard of the palace which now houses the Museum of Natural Sciences.
