Abstract :
The urban palace was the physical manifestation of the family in the city and served to evoke and to create memory. Palaces could perpetuate the family name and promote the reputation of individual members. Observes how palace builders sometimes sacrificed the potential visual impact of a new palace in a conspicuous site, preferring a location in the ancestral neighbourhood, thus reinforcing ties between the family and its original environment. Suggests some of the motivations for palace building, which could be connected, for example, to a return from exile or from foreign residence. In such cases, building was a projection of a wish to re-establish or reinforce family presence. Also examines the significance of the architectural forms chosen for palaces. ;
