  • The building is located to the left of Piazza Motta, watching from the side of the Lake. Built in the second half of the 16th century, the building was the seat of the Council of the community of the Riviera of Orta, the precursor of our City Council. In fact, the community, although part of the fief of the Bishop of Novara, elected their own deputies, who exercised democratically the legislative and Executive for more than four centuries (from the mid-14th to mid-18th century). It consists of a portico with arches, two on one side and three on the other hand. An external staircase leads to the upper Hall which was closed: it is only open during exhibitions. The exterior is decorated with the coats of arms of some bishops of Novara, Orta's coat of arms and the painting of a Woman depicting justice "flanked by two Angels with sword and scales. There are also three sundials.

  • Nice space to harangues, still imagine the people under the balcony gathered to listen to the arengador. Very well decorated

  • In the middle of Piazza Motta, the mansion is a sixteenth-century building decorated with frescoes. Beautiful facility which is now used as an exhibition space.
