Tapahtuma > Padova upside down

PADOVA UPSIDE DOWN The Palazzo Della Ragione it’s  a medieval building used as palace of justice and city council's assembly hall. It separates Piazza delle Erbe from Piazza dei Frutti, the seat of the daily fruit and vegetable market, that always pulsates with people. Guided tour of Palazzo Della Ragione , with expert guides archeologists. The tour includes both outside and inside part and you will discover also the underlying archeological site.
At the end of the tour ( about 3 hours) you can spend sometimes on ground floor, the so called Sottosalone, where are hosted various shops where you can find all sort of Paduan specialties and delicatessen, or have a cocktail in the heart of the square.
It was built from 1218 and 1219, and later enlarged in 1306. After the great fire of 1420 (which completely destroyed some frescos realized by Giotto!), the upper floor was turned into a single great room by the Venetian architects who directed the restoration. It is known as "il Salone", and it is reputed to have the largest roof unsupported by columns in Europe (81,5M x 24m).
The walls are covered with allegorical frescoes depicting the astrological theories of Pietro d'Abano, a professor at La Sorbonne in Paris and at Padua University in the 13th century. The frescoes represent the influxes of stars on men's activities and life.
The huge wooden horse on the western side of the hall was built in 1466 and is modelled on Donatello's Gattamelata standing on Piazza del Santo.
