The Palazzo Comunale is an agglomeration of several buildings from the 11th and 12th centuries that was completed in the 17th century. The impressive clock-tower dates from the end of the 1400s, as the original tower was destroyed in 1671 by a earthquake. The best part of the Palazzo Comunale is the Sala del Fuoco which is actually a series of paintings by dell'Abate of the seige of Modena in 44 BCE. I didn't enter the Palazzo Comunale, so I'm not sure when or where you can tour the grounds.
