The combination of styles highlights the well-balanced beauty of marbles, paintings and decorations chosen from Gian Galeazzo Visconti, who in 1396 invited the most famous architects and artists of his age in Pavia. Have a look to the façade: on its pure white background mottled with old pink and green nuances the best sculptors and architects have written a rare page of the history of art. Angels, kings, saints, patriarchs and prophets are alternated with marble panels crowded with plastic figures, delicate, pleaded columns and polished pillars. On the highest part of the façade the abundance of decorations leaves space for an open small loggia that gives some freshness to the structure.
