The Broletto

A broletto  is a “palace of the commune,” a public building dedicated to secular use. The 13th century Broletto in Como is prettily striped in pink, white and grey marble. Located next to the cathedral, it has been a town hall, a theater and is now an exhibitions center in the downtown district.
