Once the seat of an independent republic, this grand palace was built in the mannerist style in the 1590s and largely refurbished after a fire in the 1770s. Today it hosts high-profile temporary art exhibitions (an excellent photography show was running at last visit).

There are several smaller museums inside, including the Stanza del Jazz , with a collection of original recordings. The palazzo also has a bookshop and the fine M-Cafe.
