    Description:

    The Palazzo del Comune, also called Palazzo della Ragione, was built at the end of the twelfth century and is the oldest city hall in Italy. Three major fires in 1218, 1541 and 1723 destroyed large parts of the building, including the original towers. After several modifications, the palace reached its present form. The neo-classical façade facing the Piazza delle Erbe was preserved, while at the rear of the palace at the Piazza dei Signori it appears in a Renaissance style.

    Description:

    At the end of the 16th century urban administration had expanded so much that a new town hall was required. The Flemish architect Lieven de Key, who served Haarlem as municipal architect, designed a new façade in 1594 (restored after a fire in 1929). The facade still stands but the rest of the building was redesigned and rebuilt in 1932 by architect CJ Blaauw. At that time the new plaza, the Stadhuisplein, was created.

    Description:

    Currently there is sculpture in the pediment; added in 1957 by sculptor Pieter d'Hont.

    The appearance was determined by the severe facade of Bentheim sandstone, built in neoclassical style, with a temple-style front of four Doric columns. The rear section facing Oudkerkhof / Short Minrebroederstraat was added in the same style, 1844-1847. The City Hall recently had a renovation and addition built by Enric Miralles (2000, the year of his death). [Dutch language Wikipedia]
