Foto Arezzo: Palace of the Elderly
In Piazza della LibertÓ (Freedom Square) is the Palace of the Elderly, dating back to the 14th century that is the current Town Hall. This building was reshaped several times. It features some remarkable patterns as a crenelled cornice on the roof and a squared belfry with merlons on the top and a clock dial I the middle of the structure.
Foto Arezzo: Cathedral
The impressive Cathedral was built in the 13th century and completed in the 16th century. The portals feature astonishing archivolts decorated with niches lodging sculptures and engraved lunettes. The aisles have round-headed clerestory windows with stained glasses. Noteworthy is the campanile characterized by an interesting little rose-windows pattern. In the centre of the piazza is a remarkable statue by Pietro Francavilla representing Francis Medici.
Piazza Grande
Foto Arezzo: Piazza Grande
It was the market place and the core of the old comune. There are several buildings of great interest such the tower-house Cofani, the judicial court and the Vasari Logge, a masterpiece of the great Italian architect Giorgio Vasari and consequently, in his honor, the piazza is colloquially known as Piazza Vasari. Here is held the Antiquarian Fair of Arezzo; it has been the first antiquarian manifestation having a regular monthly cadence on the first Sunday, and is one of the most important in Italy.
