The municipality of the city of Verona has been based in the Gran Guardia Nuova Palace, in front of the Arena since 1874. The building was erected between 1835 and 1848 by Giuseppe Barbieri, on the site of the della Misericordia Hospital which was then demolished. The palace, with its colonnaded façade, was damaged during the World War II, but was then renovated and expanded in successive years. Inside the palace, there are two paintings on cloth which were previously on display. They depict the Victory over Barbarossa in Vaccaldo in 1164 and the Victory of the Veronese over the Benacesi in 849.
