Who visit Lucca cannot fail to stop in front of Palazzo Bernardini. Legend has it that the devil convinced the Bernardine lords to build an imperial palace by destroying the image of the Madonna that was right there. The stone in the window to the right of the entrance arched and attempts to bring it back straight were unsuccessful. An iron structure was even used, but it too was totally useless. Even today, the stone jamb placed on the first window to the right of the door is strangely curved.
