Palazzo Gambacorti

This building, now the Town Hall, is the result of a long history of adaptations and additions that, archaeological investigations have shown, began in mid 11th century, when a casa torre (tower house) now incorporated into the south side of Palazzo Gambacorti, was built between Via Toselli (Carraia Maiore in the Middle Ages) and Via degli Uffizi.Although not easy to observe because of another construction built onto the east of it, the building technique used to construct the tower was extremely skillful, denoting a distinguished client, perhaps the Sismondis or Viscontis, known to have possessed much property in the area.
