Palazzo Comunale


The building, in which the magistrates of the city resided, was built in the second half of the thirteenth century and a century later incorporated the nearby tower of the Da Biserno family, a noble lineage from the Maremma. On the front stands the coat of arms of the Medici, who in 1555 incorporated this territory in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, and on the left a bas-relief of Urbano da Cortona of the fifteenth century.

On the inside, two memorial stones commemorate Giuseppe Garibaldi, an honorary citizen of the city. Currently the lobby of the Town Hall houses Icarus, a sculpture donated by Maestro Igor Mitoraj. The Mayor’s office is located in the Cappella dei Priori, frescoed in 1525.

Itinerary of the walls

The walls of Massa Marittima, built between the 13th and 14th centuries, today have a characteristic butterfly-wing shape which identifies the lower part of the city (which includes the Borgo and Cittavecchia districts) and the upper part (Cittanuova district). ). The rather irregular route largely follows the morphological conformation of the territory. The current layout of the walls is the result of heavy Sienese interventions which, in the mid-fourteenth century, reduced the urban perimeter, leaving the convent of San Francesco outside.

The works of the Sienese fortifications included the construction of a fortress that enclosed the ancient bishop's castle of Monteregio and connected, through a daring architectural construction, the Sienese arch, to the tower of the Candlestick. (XII century).

In the lower part there are the Porta delle Formiche (later called dell'Abbondanza or del Teatro), the Porta dell’Arialla, the Porta di San Bernardino, reopened in 1943 and the Porta alla Spina (currently walled up). Going up towards the New Town there are the Porta Eleonora (called Nuova, del Soccorso or della Rocca) reopened in 1784, the door to the Silici and the Porta San Francesco. In 1857 the Porta S. Pietro, also known as al Poggio, was demolished, surmounted by a large tower and equipped with a bridge, to facilitate the viability of the New City. In fact, the current Piazza XXIV Maggio was created here.

Since 2005 the Municipality of Massa Marittima, with the support of the Tuscany region and the support of the University of Florence, has implemented a program for the recovery of the civic walls. The walls constitute a fundamental solution of continuity between the historic town and the road access system to the city. The spaces adjacent to the city walls are often built up, but most of them are used as vegetable gardens or public green areas, if not uncultivated. Therefore, the opportunity was taken to create spaces that allow the enhancement of the walls, their structural recovery, their insertion into the landscape and the organization of the access system to the historic center.

The Municipality of Massa Marittima in planning choices, has favored the arrangement of the areas adjacent to the walls for services for the community such as parking lots and public parks. In 2016, an abandoned green space was recovered by creating the green work "sol omnibus lucet" dedicated to Norma Parenti, gold medal for military valor.

The walls, almost intact, are a fundamental sign in the landscape around Massa Marittima and offer spectacular views over the territory of the metalliferous hills, and the Tuscan archipelago.
