It dates back to 1293, it was built on demand of Alberto Scoto. It’s the most important witness of the Scottis domination in Castell’Arquato.The double loggia dates back to 1447 . It’s got a very complex structure, made of several fire brick architectural volumes supported by a three storey building. This is the 13th century part of the building, with a Ghibelline crenellation imitating the 4 original ones. Under a wide arch there’s a memorial.
The palace is currently hosting the Municipal Council but is also the location of exhibitions, weddings, lectures and meetings.  Between the windows, the coat of arms of Comunitas Castri Arquati: two lions leaning on the walls of the crenellated castle.
Part of the building now hosts part of the Municipal Wine Shop.
