The architect was Mnesicles; the material Pentelic marble, with Eleusinian blackstone for dados and other details.

Above the Piazza della Signoria, at the highest point of the town, is the Palazzo Ducale, erected by the dukes of Urbino in 1474-1480; the architect was, in all probability, Lucio da Laurana, to whom is due the palace at Urbino, which this palace resembles, especially in its fine colonnaded court.
The new town was, for the most part, laid out by the German architect Schaubert.
