The city block consisting of several buildings had belonged to the Massimo family since the thirteenth century. However, after the Sack of Rome (1527), the properties were divided among the principal members of the family, leading to changes and transformation. The palace of Pietro Massimo was rebuilt between 1532 and 1536 by Baldassare Peruzzi and thereafter renamed for its “columns”. In his design, Peruzzi complied with the pre-existing monuments in the area, in particular the ancient Odeon of Domitian, whose foundations are reflected in curvilinear facade along Via Papalis (now Corso Vittorio Emanuele II). It has an entrance porch featuring the famous harmonic columns.
