The First Morando Tenement House

Zamosc, Poland

In 1582 the first wooden house was built on the Great Market for Bernardo Morando, the architect native of Padua(Italy), the author of a new town of Zamosc, modelled on Renaissance theories of the "ideal city".
Later on he built a new brick house for himself at the same place.
The elevations are modest and only few architectural details have been partly preserved like 14 monkeys in window finials or a low-relief narrow frieze with a twig on the facade.
