The Loggia del Consiglio is located on Piazza dei Signori, also known as Piazza Dante. It was built in the 15th century and served as a meeting place for the then city council. In addition to this function, the Loggia del Consiglio also had a symbolic meaning. Venice had power over Verona at the time and the building of a town hall served as a symbol of the small independence that they still possessed at the time. It was also built right in front of the Palazzo del Capitano, the place from which Venice exercised its power over Verona. On the inside of the Loggia are marble columns, grandiose paintings and beautiful images. At the front of the building there are four large double windows. Finally, on the roof are five statues created by Alberto da Milani and representing famous Italians born in Verona: Gaius Valerius Catullus, Pliny the Elder, Aemilius Macer, Marcus Vitruvius Pollio and Cornelius Nepos.

This building dates to the 15th century and was formerly the City council building. It is now the seat of the Provincial Administration. Described as a neo-classical design, the building has a walkway facing the Piazza with the upper floor supported by pillars with decorative arches. On the upper floor, each window is a set of two smaller windows with central column and arch over each and a larger decorative arch surmounting each set. It can only be viewed externally.

This splendid Renaissance palace, with its magnificent porch, is neo-classical in design and was built in the second half of the 15th century as the meeting-place of the town council, and is now the seat of the Provincial Administration. The upper section bears splendid frescos, whilst the double-arched windows feature coloured marble inlays with armonial bearings and sculptures. It looks out onto a beautiful square which is a peaceful place to rest for a while and watch the world go by. It is considered one of the most beautiful of Northern Italy’s Renaissance Palaces.
