Palazzo Municipale

Piazza del Duomo, 6-7, Acireale, (Catania)

The Town Hall (or Loggia Giuratoria) is located in Duomo Square, and is home of the City. Its construction began in 1659, and it was reconstructed after the earthquake of 1693 by Constantine Larcidiacono. The facade is in late Baroque style: the ground floor is characterized by a long balustrade; the balconies of the first floor are supported by Baroque masks. In the Palace are also established the Academy of Sciences, Humanities and Fine Arts and the Museum of Uniforms, hosted at the "Room Costarelli": permanent exhibition of historical uniforms since the eighteenth century.
