Situated in one of the most characteristic streets in the old town, this palazzo was the Ratta family’s senatorial residence. Erected around 1570, on the remains of an earlier building, the palazzo is distinguished by its porticoed façade, remodelled during the Neo-Classical period, and by its two interesting arcaded Renaissance courtyards, the second of which dates to the end of the fifteenth century.
