Palazzo del podestà

This view, which shows Piazza Erbe today, Palazzo della Ragione and the fifteenth century Astronomical Clock Tower, gives an idea of the functional, artistic and historical twine of the buildings that today have survived the continuous series of renovations and constructions. If on the one hand still today it is possible to admire the grace and character given to Palazzo del Podestà by architect Fancelli, despite the radical alterations made by Aldo Andreani, on the other hand the viewer must keep in mind that the building is a synthesis, unique of its kind, of divergent architectural perspectives. These different influences are visible if we look at the facades, the interior, along a fascinating walk that is also a journey into the past. It must also be noted that the facade on Piazza Erbe, the work on Fancelli, is juxtaposed to the pre-existing medieval facade, of which we can still see the frescoes painted on the once exterior walls.
