Presentation

Monumental building with a large porch; it was conceived as a military building, and used by troops for that purpose. The construction was begun in 1610 but it was finished in the mid 19th century. It is a two-storey building: the lower floor is rusticated (with numerous stones actually coming from the Arena) and has a porch with thirteen arches, whereas the upper floor is cadenced by big windows alternating triangular and curved contours.
