Historical notes

Upon it there is the big public clock with tower and bell, originally created in 1783, its mechanisms are now kept in the civic museum, and were replaced by electronic devices. Since 1923 at the palace foot, is situated a memorial, outstanding artwork by Leonardo Bistolfi.
The 19th century building has under its arcade a fresco dated 1671 representing the Passion. Remarkable is also the view you have from the palace.
