Palazzo dei Banchi

It was built in 1412, although the façade and the portico were completed in 1565-1568 under design by Jacopo Barozzi da Vignola. The palace is connected by a portico, known as a Pavaglione, to the Archiginnasio of Bologna. The term derives from the French pavillon, meaning "pavilion", in reference to a fair of silkworms held here in 1449.
Behind the palace is a market of local products.
