The architectural characteristics are simple, both outside and inside with a particularly charming cloister. Paintings and busts of the Cesarini family are a found throughout with paintings depicting the Duke Giuliano III, his brother Philip and Gaetano (eldest son of Livia and Federico Cesarini Sforza). The Duchess Livia is represented in a beautiful marble bust of 1851.
