Torre Civica

The civic tower, like the near "Palazzo Vecchio", was built in the XII century during the Bolognese dominion, but along the centuries it underwent several alterations.In the early XVI century, during the Este dominion, it was added a public clock. On the south side there's a niche hosting an image of Our Lady dating back to the fifties.The interior is divided into three floors commonly known as "Hell" "Purgatory" and "Paradise": the lower floor used to be a jail from the XVII to the XIX century. One of the most famous prisoners of the tower was the bandit Stefano Pelloni, known as "Passatore", kept here in 1849.
