Palazzo Spada, near Rome's Campo de Fiori. This was built in 1540 for a cardinal and improved by Cardinal Bernardino Spara and his brother Virginio in the 17th century. They assembled a big art collection which is open to the public and hired Borromini to construct a clever gallery that appears longer than it is due to successively shortened columns.
