The Moroni Palace is one of the most important and best preserved aristocratic buildings in bergamo. Among the wide collection of archive documents still preserved in the Palace, this paper takes  into consideration the precious construction site account book (1646-1666): its data, together with the ones contained in the 1680 inventory and in the land purchase documents, allow to follow in  detail the progress of the construction, both structural and decorative. thanks to the analysis of these documents and of the architecture, it is now possible to rigorously describe the realisation  phases of the building between 1646 and 1655 and at the same time to cast light on the site workers. In the Moroni Palace emerges a complex sequence of architectural stratifications, including the incorporation and reuse of some earlier buildings. Furthermore, the documents help to clarify the development of the first floor decoration, with the frescoes made by two of the protagonists of the  Lombard baroque, Gian Giacomo barbelli and Domenico Ghislandi. this research has identified a wider original extension of the cycle than the present, putting again into discussion and clarifying  both the chronologies and the attributions of these spectacular frescos.
