It stands opposite the cathedral. And 'the result of enlargement and transformation of a group of medieval buildings: it was built in Renaissance style, starting in 1476 for Federico da Montefeltro, designed by Francesco di Giorgio Martini from Siena, possibly completing a project initial Laurana .. The work was completed under Guidobaldo. The walls of the buildings above, including the former residence hall, are easy to find out, especially in the downstream side. Inside the palace is a beautiful courtyard, reminiscent, in a smaller size, the buildings and yards of Urbino and which corresponds to the space previously occupied by the ancient town square. Below, on three sides, were succeeded by slender arches of the porch columns and pilasters at the corners at top floor with an elegant architrave windows divided by pilasters. Currently you can visit the ground floor rooms, which keep chimneys and other architectural ornaments, the copy of the "study" of Federico da Montefeltro (the original work is at the Metropolitan Museum in New York), as well as underground with interesting findings of the excavation. Other wings of the building are used as temporary exhibitions.

This is not a place I associate with snow, but I confess it adds an element of isolation to the scene (as does the lack of tourists!) Your chosen PoV is excellent, and creates a near-symmetrical composition, somehow appropriate for the balanced architecture you display. Good work!

Great choice of pov. As others have said there is a strong symmetry. Good sense of perspective in both directions. Lots of architectural detail to cath the eye too. Very well done.

un'altra bella composizione, dalla splendida tramatura del pavimento, al colonnato comprensivo di figura in movimento.
Ottimo lavoro, come sempre.

Thanks for sharing this interesting architecture from 1476. The arches and and other design are well seen and captured under fine lighting. I like the snow in the yard as well.
Thanks and kind regards,

The snow tongue invading the inside part of the arcade gives a terrible cold sensation...I like the perspective very much. A good shot to remember those siberian days...
