The author investigates the reasons of the strong interest of Pope Sixtus V for aquiring the Palazzo della Torre, property of the Colonna family, belonging to the oldest aristocracy of Rome, even against the will of Cardinal Ascanio Colonna, who had inherited it from his father, the famous Marcantonio of the battle of Lepanto. Sixtus wished to give back the Palazzo to the Franciscan Convent of Santi Apostoli not only as a sign of his affection but mainly to accomplish a new urban project for the eastern part of Rome, from the hill of the Qurinale to the Piazza delle Terme, near his familiar Villa Peretti Montatlto.
