Aldobrandeschi Palace

Aldobrandeschi Palace, seat of the local Government of the Province of Grosseto, is one of the main palaces of the city. A first building, constructed in medieval age, was connected the nearby Rocca Aldobrandesca, where there once was also a church, dedicated to San Giorgio; both the church and the Rocca disappeared in the course of the centuries. The gradual depopulation of the city, because of spreading of the malaria, brought to a period of decadence, both for the city and for its institutional seats. The slow and inexorable degradation, lasted some centuries, culminated with the decision to pull down and to rebulid the ancient Aldobrandesco palace. The current palace has been finished at the beginning of the 1900's: the structure has a neo-Gothic style. On the lateral flanks there are still some elements of the original medieval building.
