The Piazza's, Verona: 36 reviews and 92 photos
Favorite thing: Palazzo Barbieri occupying large space at Piazza Bra, it is neo-Classical structure built on the site of demolished Misericordia hospital. The palace was built from 1835 to 1848 by Giuseppe Barbieri and primarly had military purpose housing Grand Guardia Nuova. Later on the palace was home for the council offices.
Inside the building hang two large pictures illustrating two very important battles for the city of Verona, the first one representing victory over Barbarossa at Vacaldo in 1164, while the second illustrating victory of the Veronese over Benacensi in 1849.
