Historical notes

The XVI Century triumphal arch in terracotta with unique fornix leads, through a 250 meters long avenue, to the monumental building called Mauriziano. The arch was built, according to the tradition, by Orazio Malaguzzi, who also restored and enriched the interior of the palace.
The arch was then restored twice, in 1874 and in 1933.
