The Palazzo Publico - City palace - was built int e 13.th century. The building itself is something very nice, but the museum of it is full of history. There are a lot of art work to see.

Smallish museum, interesting history as well as beauty. I particularly liked the fresco depicting government figures - some portrayed as devils - some things never change!
