I detected a palace ... here is one of the pictures in it ...

Too big to show it here. It's an astronomy of the 7 artes, and it is given as painted in 1411-12, so rather early.
Here is Musica ...

But the Palazzo has much more mysteries, for instance 9 Worthies
20 Roman heroes:

7 planets. Ages of Man. Hours of the day ... so the whole is made with some sense for medieval systems. Also many other frescoes.
All frescoes in the palace, except those of the chapel, were commissioned by Ugolino III Trinci, who died in 1415. Their execution started probably in 1407. The concept of these fresco cycles probably came from Francesco Federico Frezzi, the bishop of Foligno and author of the Quadriregio, a poem of the four kingdoms Love, Satan, the Vices, and the Virtues. Some of these frescoes were painted between 1411 and 1412 by Gentile da Fabriano, with the assistance of Jacopo Bellini. The designs were by Gentile da Fabriano, but their painting was almost completely done by pupils. The authorship of the frescoes was attested by Lodovico Coltellini, a scholar who saw in 1780 two receipts to Ugolino Trinci by Gentile da Fabriano for painting the halls.
... died in Constance 1416
I "detected" the Palazzo, when following Corado III Trinci, the man, who celebrated a Trionfi in "1436" [likely wrong date] as described above in the first post.
I checked also art, which possibly was influenced by cardinal Giovanni Vitelleschi, Trinci's opponent. Vitelleschi started to build a Palazzo, but it was finished in 1460, long after his death in 1440. Part of it seems to have been a personal "studiolo", which is given to the time of before 1440 (I actually thought, that Leonello d'Este started the studiolo fashion).

A Temperantia sitting (on a throne ?), with a Lucrezia scene . Not far from this appears this figure (another virtue? Fides?)

Another work made on commission of cardinal Vitelleschi. (Artist: Fra Filippo Lippi 1437)

The image reminds me again on something with Leonello, the Muses for his studiolo.
Curiously I found in Trionfi.com's early works about Angelo Perrasio, also called Macagnino, who was of essential importance for the Muses in Ferrara ....
"Angelo was a native of Siena and, before he came to Ferrara, he worked in Umbria. In the year 1439 he was the subject of an active correspondence between the community of Sienna and Cardinal Vitelleschi. The painter was then in the prison of the town of Nocera on account of a murder committed in Camerino, and the townsmen of Sienna intervened on his behalf with Vitelleschi
. Angelo "illud homicidium non-fecit corruptus pecunia … sed … rixe juvenum" (the painter was then very young). But the Cardinal refused their petition; "Si deliquerit igitur punietur."
Happily, he appears to have relaxed his severity later on for, after November 7 1447 we find the artist in Ferrara, the favourite of Lionello, and afterwards of Borso."
Comment from Georg Gombosi in The Burlington Magazine, Feb. 1933

The relation between Macagnino and Vitelleschi stays not clear to me. Anyway, whatever the relation, Macagnino survived Vitelleschi, and I've a curious suspicion about the studiolo of Leonello. In the time of 1452-55, when the Trionfi cards found an high interest in Florence and Ferrara, we have, that Borso had a big favor for this Angelo Perrasio.
Ferrara loved to present their Muses sitting on a throne ... after Angelo Perrasio was active there (he died 1456). Already Vitelleschi seems to have had a preference for "women on throne".
Vitelleschi in July 1439 (so at the end or still during the active council) started to gather some less important condottieri for an attack on Foligno and Trinci (actually already in 1438 had been an attempt by him). By a treason of the population Corrado Trinci was captured in September.
Material about Trinci is difficult to get. At least this seem to be right (with many open questions):
The Trinci ruled in Foligno and some other towns since 1304 with some interception in the 1370s. Braccio da Montone fought against the Trinci in the service of king Ladislaus (so before 1414). Ugolino died in 1415. 3 Ugolino sons ruled then in Folino. Two of them were killed in a treacherous manner 1421 by a castelan. The youngest brother Corrado could reestablish himself with the help of Braccio da Montone (1423). Muzio Attendola (Francesco Sforza's father) and Braccio da Montone died 1424. After the successful revenge of his father's death Francesco Sforza seems to have cooperated with Trinci in an attack on other Bracceschi near Perugia. Somehow Sforza forced Corrado to make peace with Pope Martin (all in 1424). Sforza decided then to work for Filippo Maria Visconti, which developed to his longer Milanese period tiil 1433 (when he went to the Marches). There, close to Foligno, Trinci belonged to those, who opposed Sforza, but he gave way in 1435.
In 1438 (really difficult to find) I found something, which relates to the "triumphal action" in Foligno cause a win in Spoleto ( which was what I was searching for a long time).
The biography of Taliano Furlano, a condottiero, has for May 1438

http://www.executedtoday.com/2010/06/14 ... gno-italy/
Chiede rinforzi a Francesco Piccinino, al Trinci ed alle autorità di Norcia, di Bevagna e di Montefalco affinché tutti insieme assalgano Spoleto. Prende la via dei monti, supera le guarnigioni che sorvegliano i passi ed irrompe nottetempo nella città, che viene messa orrendamente a sacco, non risparmiando né case né chiese. Sono 1000 gli spoletini cui è richiesto un riscatto e 14000 le some di bottino portate a Foligno. Il Furlano si ricongiunge ancora con Francesco Piccinino e muove contro Assisi; si accampa a Santa Maria degli Angeli dove, dopo due giorni, è raggiunto da due commissari viscontei che sollecitano il suo rientro in Lombardia. Prende la strada per Pianello e si ferma ad assediare Pergola.
