Historical building with an interesting clock tower, with earing clock mechanism you can see closing. Fantastic sightseeing onto the main square, one of the most beatyful in Italy as confirmed.

A museum featuring the Bartolini collection of paintings, scultures and drawings. What I fund most interesting, however, was the exceptional old clock that has been working for nearly five centuries. Using ropes and stone weights as well as some interesting levers and such, it keeps...More
