Banca CARIPLO, Via delle Quattro Fontane
The Pontificio Collegio Scozzese was formerly located at Via delle Quattro Fontane 161 immediately opposite Palazzo Barberini. The college was rebuilt in 1869 when the present facade was erected. Above the first floor window over the main entrance is a carving of the Royal Arms of Scotland with supporters and the motto "NEMO ME IMPUNE IACESSIT" (No one injures me with impunity).
Above the windows of the top floor are six front-facing deep relief busts in round niches, each representing an important person in the history of the college. The second of these busts from the left is of King Henry IX and I; in the circle around the bust is a Latin inscription:
HENRICVS CARD DVX EBORACAE
Henry, Cardinal Duke of York
The building is now owned by a bank, CARIPLO (Cassa di Risparmio delle Provincie Lombarde).
To the right of the former college is the Chiesa di Sant' Andrea degli Scozzese.
