Cosimo Morelli designed this palace in 1780, on the site of the Palazzo Orsini-Santobono, for the nephew of Pius VI (Braschi). It was the last of the princely palaces erected in Rome by the papal families. It is in the form of a trapezoid, with one corner on Piazza San Pantaleo, and another on Via di Pasquino. Here, by the palace, we see the famous « Maestro Pasquino », a fragment of a statue of Menelaus, from the Hellenistic group of the III cent. B. C. portraying Menelaus supporting the dead body of Patrocles. The statue is very famous for the « pasquinades » satirical witticisms) placed on the pedestal by the people, in the period of the Papal State.
