Located in Piazza Bra, one of Verona’s main squares, Palazzo Barbieri is the Town Hall of Verona. The Palazzo is named after the architect Guiseppe Barbieri who was in charge of its construction from 1836 – 1848. The building was to have been a Gran Guardia Nuova used by the Austrians during their occupation and the Hapsburgs used the Palazzo Barbieri as a base for the Austrian troops. Following the Italian unification it became the seat of the city goverment. The Palazzo Barbieri is built in neoclassical style. During World War II, on the night of 23rd February 1945, the Palazzo was hit and severely damaged but after the war it was quickly rebuilt and expanded, it opened again in March 1950.
