Housed in the 15th century Palazzo Ghisiraldi, il Museo Civico Medievale displays a rich collection of mediaeval and Renaissance art and artefacts from Bologna. The palace itself is a beauty and is worth visiting. It was designed in 1483 by Zilio di Battista Montanari for the Ghisiraldi family. As was typical for that era, it has a gorgeous red brick and terracotta fašade, with Romanesque windows, and a spacious courtyard with a double loggia. The palace was later acquired by the Fava family, so it is sometimes referred to by the two names, i.e. Palazzo Ghisiraldi-Fava.
