Palace of Capitano di Giustizia


"Police headquarters"

Also known as the 'Carceri nuovi', new prisons, it started functioning in 1578. With a rectangular plan, it is based on two courtyards with four small towers at the corners. The first courtyard still conserves the Doric columns and a loggia. The severe architecture recalls the function for which the building was designed, and the ashlar work gives the structure a particularly monumental character. It was restored in 1943 and today it houses the headquarters of the Municipal police force.
