The façade was once decorated with frescoes. In the 19th and 20th century, anonymous constructions were erected in the garden behind the palace. A 18th century water colour shows puttoes between the windows of the terminating mezzanine, female allegoric figures above the piano nobile windows and historical and mythological stories painted on the piano nobile face sides, whereas the ground floor and the first mezzanine were decorated with a painted bossage with two large niches with Hercules and Neptune. Parts of these frescoes where still conserved at the end of the 19th century, as old photos show.
The interior still has remnants of frescoes by Veronese.
