  • Antico Mercato
    get there

    Conceived in the general process of post-unification city change, the construction of the covered market was designed by engineer Edoardo Troja. When the market was moved, the structure was used to keep spectacles and craft exhibitions. The restoration, carried out at the end of the nineties, has privileged the restoration of the original structure while maintaining the relationship with the oldest temple area in the city. The result is a functional structure that harmoniously combines ancient and modern, and today hosts a dynamic pole of services for tourists.
