History

Palazzo Comunale Bracciano
Palazzo Comunale

The design of the Palazzo Comunale was entrusted to Orazio Torriani. Mistakes made during its construction caused the need for several renovations in the 18th century.

In 1770, Antonio Asprucci needed to alter the appearance of the palace, in order to address the stability problems the building had had from the beginning.

In the 17th century, the palazzo housed not only the town hall but also a school, granaries and a theater, built at the behest of Livio Odescalchi.

Neighbours

The building to the right of the Palazzo Comunale was also constructed by Torriani who later went to live there himself. I cannot find any information about the building on the left. They are however both worth a look, so here are some photos.
