Girolamo Forni was another of mine - not many to tell the truth - bourgeois clients.
Like the notary Cogollo for example, for whom I had studied a similar solution on the facade.
He supplied wood to many of my sites, such as that of Palazzo Chiericati, and had grown rich. He was an entrepreneur who painted himself, who collected antiques, which he then founded together with me and Vittoria and I considered him our friend.
So it was that out of friendship I redesigned, what little needed, his house in a cottage.
