Very interesting place. If you got a time you have to visit the tower and see the clock. You will see greater sample of astronomic clock.

This tower is different to many of the other clock towers in the Emilia Romagna region because it has a number of extra features. There is a cover above the clock face to shield it from the sun and the weather. There is also a statue in a niche below the clock and further down a small balcony. Worth seeing.

This astronomical clock tells more than the time of day. It also displays the phases of the moon, the location of the planets, and charts the path of the sun through the Signs of the Zodiac. It was designed by a mathematician in 1473. Pretty impressive considering the number of calculations that had to be done by hand.

The clock tower is very impressive. You can go inside and learn how the clock works and how is was made.

The interior was closed because the building is under construction but you can still view the exterior tower and the 15th century clock on its exterior made by Bartolomeo Manfredi
