The eyes-catching facade features a huge narthex preceding the portals and a remarkable arcades pattern in Pisa-Romanesque style above the entrance. The aisles' clerestory windows are, instead, a Gothic masterpiece. Noteworthy is the tall campanile: it is decorated with various patterns of lights and is characterized by marble bands covering the bell cells' storeys. The belfry is surmounted by merlons.
Guinigi Tower

It is the town symbol. The belfry is a Medieval brickwork covered surface tower masterpiece and its height measures 44 mt. Its peculiarity is the holm-oaks on the top roof. It is named after the noble family who built it in the middle age.

It is an elegant Neoclassical building. The central bay is projected and features a huge balcony extending along the rusticated loggia ornamenting the first storey. The bays are divided by Ionic pilasters. The central section's lights are surmounted by linear pediments and metopes decorating the entablatures. On the massive front's tympanum is depicted the city coat of arms. In front of the theater is a Giuseppe Garibaldi statue, made by Urbano Lucchesi.
