Show sight on map

The Palazzo degli Elderi of Ancona has been the ancient municipal headquarters of the city from the thirteenth century. It is located in Piazza Stracca, called until a few decades ago "Piazza del Comune", in front of the Church of the Jesus. In 2011 it returned to being the seat of the City Council, after a parenthesis that lasted from 1945 to 2010, a period in which Council met at Palazzo del Popolo. Together with the latter, in which the junta still meets and the mayor has its cabinet, the Palazzo degli Elderi is again the municipal seat, returning to play the role for which he arose in the Middle Ages.
