Palazzo del comune (Town Hall)

This Gothic palace was built between 1294 and 1385. The austerity of its massive facade on arcades is happily tempered by elegant Gothic twin or triple bay windows, and by the small delicate wrought-iron central balcony. At the centre and the corners notice the six ball escutcheon, the shield of the Medicis.
