  • The hospital was originally located here since the 15TH century. In 1827 the decision was made to build a new impressive building and the hospital, church and some buildings of Sant'Agnese in front of the square were destroyed and in 1831 the project was approved by Giuseppe Barbieri. The palace was designed for military purposes, so it was called Gran Guardia Nuova. In 1848, the Imperial Royal Command of the city and fortress was founded here. After a few years of inactivity and only after some restoration work in 1868, the city offices opened here.

All mayors of Verona sit here and photographed against the backdrop of massive paintings by Veronese and schools which cannot be tourists Brusasorci see live; the city administration here sits the Palace named in honor of the architect Giuseppe Stefania Barbieri, who was the author of the most beautiful Palace in the square in 1826 year., formerly housed the leadership of the Austrian army and the Palace was called differently.
