Converted to houses in medieval times. Converted to a fortress in the 13th century by the Savelli family, and again to a palazzo in the 16th century by the Orsini family. 1926-1932 removal of several additions and lowering of the street to the ancient street level, thus making the lower floor of the ancient theatre façade visible again.
