A small square very near the town walls is dedicated to a jurist of the 14th century called Antonio Da Budrio, who taught at the universities of Bologna. Florence and Ferrara. On one side of the square there is a portico called "The Coat of Arms Portico" because the families and confraternities who erected it had their coats of arms painted on the walls. The only remaining ones today, which have recently been restored, are those of the Pawn brokers Guild and The Baron Della Noce.
On the third side of the square there is a large building which at the present time houses the old people's home, a vocational continuity in that previously it was the Beggar's Hospice and before that the "Umberto and Margarita Hospital".
