  Notes of art in Lombardy

Piazza del Duomo is still today, as in the Middle Ages, the center of community life in the city. Redesigned in the Renaissance, when it was decided to modify the ancient and confusing area around the Duomo to give new dignity to the square according to the renaissance canons, this is characterized by the construction of monumental civil buildings that draw its perimeter. On the west side there is the grandiose Palazzo Comunale opened by an airy portico and interrupted in the middle by the majestic Torrazzo, where originally it was the ancient gateway to the medieval citadel. The layout of the square is completed to the north-east, with the construction of the Palazzo Pretorio, adjacent to the medieval Guelph Tower, and with the building of the Bishop's Palace, designed as the seat of the College of Notaries.
