The palace was rebuilt on the occasion of the wedding between Odoardo Farnese and Margherita de' Medici, on a project by Gian Battista Magnani. It has wide and high portico, whose arches were opened after it was decided to use the premises as barracks, salt customs warrehouse and mint.
On the side, which overlooking Chiesa di San Vitale, there is nice fountain, work by Paolo Toschi, on the top of which is placed a bronze group by Vanderstoch, depicting the fight between Hercules and Antaeus.
