We visited the Palazzo dei Consoli to see the Gubbio in the time of Giotto exhibition. The exhibition was very interesting and we also enjoyed the permanent collection. There is also a wonderful view of the city and surrounding countryside from the upper floor.

The Palazzo dei Consoli dominates the skyline. The fan-shaped staircase leads up to a big hall with barrel vaults that, in the communal age, housed the citizens' meeting. Now they show a chillingly complete and varied collection of torture instruments. On the same level but...More

It is a dominating historical building. This time we could see several exhibitions: historical view of torture tools, Pinacoteca, Garibaldi's uprising in Gubbio - but the most importantwere for us to study the bronze boards with ancien Umber scripts!
