Although it's name may suggest otherwise, Sala dei Giganti, that literally translates to 'Hall of Giants', is a truly beautiful place. The hall is associated with the 20th-century building Palazzo Liviano on Piazza Capitaniato. Exquisite frescoes, that depict several mythical heroes and Roman legends adorn its walls; these paintings were inspired by the works of Francesco Petrarch. It is said that enchanting concerts and conferences used to be once held at this wondrous place. Although it was renovated in 16th Century, it retains its grandeur and aplomb. Sala dei Giganti was used as the University library for some time, however now, it remains open to the general populations on Saturdays. Guided tours are available.
