The oldest nucleus of Palazzo Doria Pamphilj in the Corso dates to Giovanni Fazio Santorio (or Santoro), cardinal of Santa Sabina, who built himself an important residence between the Via Lata and the Collegio Romano, in the years 1505 to 1507.
On the death of Cardinal Ippolito Aldobrandini, Olimpia the younger was left as the sole heir of the patrimony (1638); in 1647 she married, as her second marriage, Camillo Pamphilj, nephew of Innocent X. The works undertaken by the Aldobrandini continued under the Pamphilj, involving also the rear side of the palace (1653).
For this part of the Palazzo Salviati was sacrificed; this had been bought by Camillo to make space for the new apartment, which was to be finished in 1660, with its characteristic L-shaped façade on the Piazza del Collegio Romano.
