Casa dei Mercanti, Verona

The Casa dei Mercanti or Domus Mercatorum is situated in the Piazza delle Erbe in Verona, Italy. The building, of 1210, was originally constructed in wood but in 1301 Alberto I della Scala began construction in stone. This was intended to be the wool trading centre as the Scaliger family were merchants before becoming rulers of the city. The Scala family worked hard to promote the economic life of Verona. The Domus was expanded by Albert’s successors, especially Can Grande and Cansignorio and underwent several restorations over the years, at the end of the 19th century it was restored to its original medieval appearance. With its beautiful portico, the Casa dei Mercanti is now one of the outstanding elements on the Piazza delle Erbe, the ancient centre of Verona. Today it houses the Banca Popolare di Verona.

The Domus Mercatorum be visited only from the outside.
