In the early 14th century, they enlarged it into a castle. A century later Ludovico of Acaja rebuilt it in square shape, with an inner court and a portico, and four cylindrical towers at each corner.
THE ORDER OF CLASSIZM
In the fadade of the palace on the upper side ,there are four typical Composite columns for suporting function ,others on the wall instead of independent columns but as the carve are more for decoration ,however,still are Compsite style.
On the down side of the facade ,the four columns are in innovative order.As we can see from the picture,the carve on the columns are four sets of helmet and armour,thought they didnt sculpture the people inside, it still illuminate its royal style vividiy.
