In Piazza della Mercanzia you can admire the beauty of the palace and some examples of fine medieval houses. The ancient complex is combination of three houses; Casa Seracchioli, Casa Reggiani, Palazzo Bolognini and Torre degli Alberici. Both houses, Seracchioli and Reggiani, once were used as offices of the nearby Gabella for paying taxes.
The left one, Casa Seracchioli from the 13th century, keeps the doors and arched windows while in the middle remains of the modern brick facade with the windows inspired by medieval Bolognese tradition.
On the right side is Casa Reggiani with restored wooden porticoe and pitoresque balcony which was added here in1924. Its 14th century facade is a rare example of Gothic house with two floors. Adjacent to it is Palazzo Bolognini, first homestay of Bolognini family after they moved to Bologna from the town of Lucca. In the middle of the main room is spy-hole which during medieval times was used for checking on visitors.
