Some of them are more worn than others; on some the colors have faded so far as to have nearly disappeared. But all in all, I found it to be a great, if a bit understated (at least compared to some of those that can be found in the city), display of heraldry. The following are three of the coats of arms along the exterior, selected basically at random from the photographs of all of them that I took while there.
This first is the arms of del Riccio: Or a bend between two cinquefoils gules.
This one is the arms of Velluti: Gules three annulets and a chief or. (The gules having faded to nearly white, I’m afraid that I think of “Mr. Bill” from the old Saturday Night Live show, http://www.mrbill.com/, whenever I look at it. “Ohh, nooo!”)
And finally, the arms of Biliotti: Gules on a chief argent a fox statant gules.
