  • Very well restored and partially open to the public, the Palatium Vetus is one of the oldest buildings in the city of Alexandria: in the 13th and 14th centuries it served as a brolet and therefore represented the center of judicial, administrative and political life of the medieval municipality. In the main square of Alexandria, the building immediately appears in the eyes of the visitor also for the characteristic presence of a muratable cannon in angle reminiscent of a subscription to the citadel.

  • In the main square of Alexandria Palace Vetus you spot immediately with a gun carriage masoned into angle reminding a subscription to the Citadel; the complex was a military building (latterly district) then purchased by Cassa di Risparmio di Alessandria, the restorations (intelligent) did come to light numerous medieval architectural elements. We are in the old Lombard architecture, consisting of broletto, a porch on the ground floor and a room on the first floor (we review for journalistic Awards Marchiaro, in the presence of Carlin Petrini). One of the two courtyards looks today partly surrounded by an arcade of pointed arches. Inside the courtroom of the broletto, on the first floor were found numerous trefoil Windows bricked up and several large fragments of frescoes from the 13th century to the 16th century including one that depicts the first representation of the coat of arms of City of Alexandria: Red Cross on a white field.
