The existence of a decorated house facade for the dwelling in Reggio Emilia where Lelio Orsi's family had residence is confirmed by the identification of an etching attributed to a follower of Cornelis Cort as representing a part of the facade in 1579.The etching is related to the better documented design for the house of Orsi in Novellara and the cluster of drawings which were made of and for this house.Both house decorations date from the mid sixteenth century.
