Although built in 1412, il Palazzo dei Banchi obtained its beautiful fašade in 1568. The Renaissance-style fašade facing Piazza Maggiore was the work of the architect Jacopo Barozzi. The palazzo contains Bologna's most famous portico, il Pavaglione, which links Piazza Maggiore with Palazzo dell'Archiginnasio, the headquarters of the University of Bologna. Behind the Palazzo dei Banchi lies the traditional market area of Bologna which is connected to Piazza Maggiore via two passageways through the building.
