This article offers the first thorough study of the Palazzo Talenti da Fiorenza in Milan and provides a new interpretation of its distinctive courtyard, which features a variety of disparate architectural elements, including quattrocentesque all’antica capitals as well as two tree-trunk shaped columns. Through a close examination of the physical and documentary evidence, it argues that the current palace, begun after 1553, is a consciously historicizing structure that intentionally recalls the late fifteenth-century architecture of Donato Bramante and even exploits architectural elements originally destined for his unfinished Canonica of Sant’Ambrogio. More than just an assemblage of fragments, this deliberately archaic architecture sought to celebrate the heritage of the Talenti da Fiorenza family and reaffirm their status within Milanese noble society.
