The palazzo short before its demolition (c 1937)

Palazzo Jacopo da Brescia was a Renaissance palace in Rome, Italy, which was located in the Borgo district.

It was built for Jacopo (also known as Giacomo di Bartolomeo) da Brescia, a physician at the service of Pope Leo X, between 1515 and 1519. Its design is commonly attributed to Raphael, and was based to Bramante's nearby Palazzo Caprini (also demolished). The palace, which had a triangular footprint, stood at the confluence of Borgo Nuovo and Borgo S.Angelo. It was demolished to allow the construction of the Via della Conciliazione in 1936, and rebuilt (with a different footprint) along Via dei Corridori.
