OLD MONUMENTS IN TREVISO: PALAZZO DEI TRECENTO

 
A big bomb, dropped just over the centre of the hall, knocked down the roof on April 7, 1944; the blast and the pressure wave caused the collapse of wide zones of the walls, included the side facing to Piazza Indipendenza.
When we see the fašade of the Palace from this square, we notice the mark of the collapsed zone which was rebuilt.
 
The zone of stayed up wall leaned out toward outside more than one metre and thus it was declared past redemption; the idea of demolishing the whole building was considered too.

Forlati, the supervisor, passing off some surviving frescoes as works by Paolo Veronese, avoided the demolition and promoted the restoration putting straight the walls thanks to a system of tie beams and counterpoises.

The wide hall has a ceiling supported by several timber trusses internally and the four walls are frescoed.

A frescoed frieze is visible on the three sides of the hall: the blazons, the names and the year of election of the Podestà are portrayed in it. Those Podestà managed the town in 14th century and 15 century.

The wall on the back is the richest in decorations, it has a Madonna with her child and the saints Liberale and Paolo in the central area. Four female figures symbolizing the four cardinal virtues are located next to the three windows; these frescoes were made almost surely in the second half of 16th century.

iThe interior frescoes of Palazzo dei Trecento in Treviso were repaired and cleaned by signs of the time in 2007; this work was possible thanks to private sponsors.
