On the southern side of the square faces the Palazzo della Ragione, which is the symbol of the Communal Age; on the right side the Civic Tower (XII-XV) rises, well known as Il Campanone, and here there is also the antique Domus Suardorum (XIV-XV), that now is the seat of the University of Bergamo. The northern side of the square is enclosed within a Palace built in the 1600s with a facade of white marble. Built as seat of the Town Hall, today this structure hosts the Public Library “A. Maj” that holds about 500,000 volumes and preserves a precious “Tasso Collection.” The elegant Fountain, donated by the Venetian podesta’, Alvise Contarini (XVIII), completes the spectacular view of the square.
