Palace Pretorio

The Palace Pretorio, imposing medieval building, is one of the most beautiful palaces of central Italy. The palace was built between the 13th and the 14th century connecting three different palaces. The various materials used in the different buildings still today allow us to distinguish the shapes of the primitive towers. As the public palaces of other medieval town of central and northern Italy, also the Pretorio Palace was adorned with crests along the external walls. During the 16th century a part of the building (including the bell tower) collapsed, and as a result of the restoration, the palace was equipped with a new crenellation and the little bell tower. Since 1948 in the rooms of the palace there is the Civic Museum; it collects many works of art from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. Currently it is in restoration, and a part of the works is exposed in the Museo di Pittura Murale, situated in San Domenico.
