Piazza dei Signori, Treviso


The Piazza dei Signori is a public square in Treviso, northern Italy. The piazza is lined with enormous brick buildings from the 1200's which were rebuilt after the city was bombed during World War II. The Pallazzo dei Trecento (Palace of the three hundred) is the only surviving palace of the old comune on the piazza. Also on the piazza are the Palazzo del Podesta, Monte di Pieta and the Torre Civica (Civic Tower)lo. The Monti di Pieta contains walls of gilt leather with painted beamed ceilings.

A large external stairway leads inside the The Pallazzo dei Trecento, where 15th and 16th century sculpture which survived the 1944 bombings can be seen. Great vaults are located under the Palazzo dei Trecento, where Treviso's inhabitants meet for pleasant breaks.
