dc.descriptionFrontal view of the south elevation, lower west portion; Bernini designed only three major secular schemes. One was Palazzo Chigi (begun 1664; now the Palazzo Chigi-Odescalchi). Bernini elaborated the theme of a giant pilaster order over a strong and simple basement with greater success at the smaller Palazzo Chigi. This time he used pilasters between all the window bays of the main block; the slightly recessed subsidiary blocks are astylar. The once centrally placed entrance portico has two free-standing Tuscan columns. The particularly sensitive relationship of the parts was, however, destroyed in 1745 when Nicola Salvi extended the facade to twice its original length.
