    Description

    Op het plein, tegenover het Palais des Papes, bevindt zich het Hôtel des Monnaies. Het is het eerste monument in burgerlijke barok in Avignon. Dankzij de rijkdom van de voorgevel moest het gebouw niet onder doen naast de middeleeuwse kolos aan de andere kant van het plein. De gevel van deze voormalige Rijksmunt werd ongetwijfeld bewerkt door Simone Bartoluccisous in opdracht van het neefje van paus Paulus V, Scipio Caffarelli. Op het gelijkvloers doet de geborstelde natuursteen denken aan Firenze of Bologna. In het centrum staan bovenop het wapenschild dat omlijst is door versieringen, een masker dat een verwrongen gezicht voorstelt en een komisch rozet van de comedia dell’arte met enorme neusgaten. Aan weerskanten staan de leeuwenkoppen symbool voor de kwistige overvloed dankzij de regering van paus Paulus V. De enorme fruittrossen die net zo politiek als decoratief zijn verenigen de grond van het graafschap met de wijsheid van de Romeinen. De beeldhouwer plaatste er de arend en de draak van de familie Borghese boven. Deze laatste vinden we ook terug op het wapenschild van de bovenste lijst. Merk ook op dat deze arend en deze draak zich richten naar het plein, alsof ze als antwoord dienen op de waterspuwers aan de overkant op het Palais des Papes. Gedurende een bepaalde periode werden de drie sleutels, symbool van Avignon, vermeden op de wapenschilden van de familie Borghese, maar vandaag heeft de voorgevel bijna volledig zijn pracht van weleer teruggekregen.

      Description

      Opposite the Palais des Papes, on the square, is the Hôtel des Monnaies (Mint), the earliest civil monument in the Baroque style in Avignon. Its highly-decorative facade ensures that it does not pale into insignificance opposite the medieval colossus on the other side of the square. The outside of the old Hôtel des Monnaies was probably decorated by Simone Bartolucci on the orders of the nephew of Pope Paul V, Scipione Caffarelli. The expanse of polished freestone on the ground floor calls to mind Florence or Bologna. The dedicatory cartouche in the centre is surmounted by a grinning mask and a comedia dell’arte mascaron, whose humorous nature stops at its enormous nostrils. Lions’ heads on both sides illustrate the largesse dispensed by the wise government of Pope Paul V. Huge clusters of fruit, as political as they are decorative, unite the land of the Comtat and the wisdom of Rome. The sculptor surmounted them with the eagle and dragon of the Borghese family, and they also appear on the coat of arms on the upper panel. You will notice that the eagle and dragon are looking in the direction of the square, as though in response to the gargoyles on the Palais des Papes facing them. The three keys (the symbol of Avignon) were missing from the arms of the Borghese family for a time, but now the facade has almost completely regained its original lustre.
