Designed by Bartolomeo Provaglia for Camillo Bargellini, Palazzo Davia-Bargellini was completed in 1658. One of the prized features of the palazzo are the two colossal sculptures of Telamon flanking the entrance. The Greek mythological figures were sculpted by Gabriele Brunelli and his student, Francesco Agnesini. Another distinguishing feature is that the palazzo does not have an arcaded portico, which was typical of palaces built for "senatorial" families in Bologna, among them the Bargellini. In the early 19th century, the Davia family purchased the palace, so it now also carries their name. Nowadays, the edifice houses a gallery and an art museum, il Museo Civico d'Arte Industriale.
