Palazzo dei Valenti
The Valenti were the most illustrious family of Trevi
The splendid arched portal with architrave has two masculine faces of classical flavor in the segments in relief (the right one is partly damaged) and, in the jambs within two clypei two rather worn feminine faces (near the right one the dates are graffitied with a point: 1551 and 1556). The elegant windows on the first floor, repeating the scheme of the portal, have in the segments the coats of arms of the Valenti and those of the families with which they were related, starting from the first around the corner towards San Francesco, all the same up to the fifth window; the sixth bears next to the coats of arms, different from the previous ones, the inscriptions: LAELIUS VALENS and OCTA VIA ATTAVANTES; the 7th: LAELIUS VALENS and ORTENTIA THOMA SONA. Inside, a picturesque courtyard with covered staircase, loggia and well, with some framed doors and all with the family crests.
