Palazzo del Capitano was built by joining pre-existing buildings and tower houses (the so-called case torri). Both the outside and the inside of the building are embellished with structures, arches and architectonic and decorative details that bear witness to the medieval origin of this palazzo, which has been a site of the Library since 1994.
