Loggia del Consiglio - Verona


Loggia del Consiglio is situated in Piazza dei Signori; it's the first building fully of renaissance style in all the Veneto region. It was completed in 1492 and it became the site of the town council right from the beginning. An important historical note is that in 1405 Verona was annexed to the Republic of Venice by its own accord. The venetian domain granted pace and prosperity to the city that in the past was full of internal struggles.
