  • Walking through Piazza del Popolo, one is struck by the Majesty of the splendid palazzo dei Capitani del Popolo, a symbol of the political power of the city of Ascoli Piceno, which, over the centuries, has seen many important phases of administrative life cycle public and social, Ascoli, and on which stands the 13th-century civic Tower embattled. Was built between the 13th and 14th centuries, when Ascoli, reached its greatest commercial expansion, and was used as a seat of the Capitano del Popolo, institutional local authorities,-force during the middle ages, which exercised the legislative power , and was head of the militias; then it housed the Podestà, with executive powers, judicial and police, then the Papal Governors, and finally passed to the municipality. Following the fire of 1535, the Palace was partly rebuilt thanks to the architect Cola of Amatrice and Lazarus Francis, returning to its original splendor, the grandiose entrance, where stands the monumental statue of Pope Paul III, due to the Florentine Simone Cioli. The reworking of the façade, is due to Cola Of Amatrice, while the seven arches and two large arches on the sides of the entrance portal with its splendid loggias mullioned windows above, retain their original guise. At the end of the façade you notice the arms flanked by symbolic figures of faith and hope, places to honor Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, benefactor of Ascoli. There is also a plaque with the image of Garibaldi, in remembrance of his passing and his speech in the city. Inside you can see, above the courtyard an elegant Renaissance loggia and triple the magnificent rooms, including the Sala della Ragione, depicting an old Sage. Finally, during the restoration, it came to light quite a Roman floor herringbone, therefore, is not to be missed.
