Palazzo Ducale

The Ducale Palace is situated in Piazza degli Aranci, and is one of the most beautiful monuments of Carrara. It originates from the will of prince Alberico I Cybo-Malaspina of giving to its small state ( the dukedom of Massa and Carrara) such an image to make it one of the refined states of Italy in the 16th century. Alberico transformed the old house that he possessed, in a royal palace. So it was built the original nucleus of the current Palace (1567-1570). In the course of the centuries, the family has brought several modifications and widenings to the Palace. The last arrangement of the complex was due to Teresa Pamphili, wife to Carlo II. Teresa dedicated herself to the, that once had a splendid picture gallery, and that today conserves only the works that were not taken away.
