Municipio Vecchio (Old Town Hall) was bought by the city in 1481 and has been the Town Hall for four centuries. The Town Hall is now in Palazzo Thun.
Municipio Vecchio has a neoclassical fašade, rebuilt in the XIXth. On top stands a huge eagle on a Latin inscription. I have read that it was the emblem of the city but I have also read that it was Napoleon's eagle! I do not know which is true! May be both!
The Latin is attributed to Fra' Bartolomeo da Trento, who died in 1251. It says: "Montes argentum mihi dant nomenque Tridentum" (Mountains give me silver and the name of Trento),
