Palazzo Valenti and its majestic façade stands at number 7 on Via Frattini. The commissioning family were the Valenti Gonzagas, who lived here from the 16th century. It was Odoardo who entrusted the baroque renovation to the architect Frans Geffels. The 16th century, diamond-tipped marble plinth was retained on the façade, but new and large baroque windows - both square and rectangular - were added, giving this noble residence its distinctive appearance and contrasting with the colour of the brick through the whiteness of the marble.
