Description The Gothic Broletto (town hall) (1215) in Piazza del Duomo is built in irregular courses of red, white, and dark grey marble. The plain tower of rough stone of the same date was converted into a campanile in 1435 with the addition of a top storey. Mackintosh left the belfry out of his drawing but indicated the clock face under the canopy which sits below it.
