Palazzo del Collegio Puteano

Although one of the smaller buildings in the Piazza dei Cavalieri, the Palazzo del Collegio Puteano is of significant importance because its original late 16th-century form remains pretty much unaltered.

The only addition has been some allegoric frescoes by Giovanni Stefano Marucelli. The palazzo was used by the Knights of the Order of St. Stephen up until the 1930s, after which the building was absorbed into the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa.
