Palazzo Medici, courtyard

The courtyard consists of a square space with Corinthian columns supporting arches. It seems that there were problems in mastering proportion when it came to joining the corners. Additionally, there is a sense of imbalance as the courtyard is lighter and open, while the upper and ground exteriors are heavy. With the Medici coat of arms prominent, this was to be where business was done and the arts displayed.
