palazzo-comunale-coreglia credit: comune di Coreglia Antelminelli

The Town Hall took on its present form at the end of the 16th century. The elegant façade is marked by two parallel black stone lines that define the floors giving balance to the composition. Large, sober eaves overhang the building.

The entrance door, in ashlar, is in stylistic continuity with the large quadrangular windows on the ground floor, framed between massive plates of chiselled black stone. The first floor introduces a curved line through a series of arched windows, also in black stone, which are repeated, softening the visual impact.

The second and last floor seem instead to complete the composition of the ground floor with its low square chiselled windows. The building, besides being the town hall of Coreglia Antelminelli, also houses the Historical Archive – a documentary library on the life of the main town and the surrounding communities starting from the 16th century.
