The Town Hall

The current town hall, designed and built by the architect Francesco Maria Ciaraffoni from Ancona between 1784 and 1791, was erected in the same place once occupied by a Renaissance town hall. It is a brilliant example of neoclassical architecture with a long portico overlooking Via del Corso. In addition to public offices, the building originally hosted the school, the municipal magistrate apartment, the courtrooms and the building’s chapel. The great stairway takes you to the Arnaldo Ciani main hall, where the neoclassical ceiling reigns over portraits of some of the local citizens that made Corinaldo famous. The centre of the northern wall hosts a high-backed wooden chair, the seventeenth century magistrate’s bench that was originally located in the demolished Saint Peter’s Church.
