Palazzo alla Giornata, lungarno Pacinotti
The damaged windowsills: Looking at the four windowsills, you will notice numerous cracks and alterations. According to the Nunciature Court of Florence, on 28 November 1611 in Florence a scion of the Lanfreducci family, a certain Francesco (the Younger), deliberately killed count Giorgio Bentivoglio, nephew of Bianca Cappello, due to an excess of jealousy towards a beautiful Portuguese woman. As a punishment, Francesco was sentenced to deface the façade of his own building, shattering the four windowsills on the first floor.
