Vercelli. Broletto and Piazza Cavour



Seat of the Municipality from 1200 until the early 19th century, the Broletto was where town assemblies were held and justice administered. The Torre Comunale (Municipal Tower), which dates back to the 13th century, remains as a testimony to this. The square is characterised by the typical porticos of northern cities, which entirely surround it. Its peculiarity is that it has two types of porticoes: those with pointed arches dating back to the 13th-14th centuries and the others, in terracotta, from the Renaissance period.
