The building [1,2,3] stands in front of Palazzo Pretorio, built on the walls circuit of the ancient Castle of Incisa. It consists of three housing units, which have been countlessly transformed during the years, but still present parts of walls referable to XIII and XIV century as well as 15th century inserts. However, the oldest part seems to be the building’s body set on the extreme right, the highest one, with a cut off tower structure: in fact, on the right wall, where the castle walls inserted themselves, are still visible anchorage stones. On the other hand, the central part refers to a later period, by the second half of the XII century; and finally the smaller building’s body belongs to 14th century.
Tradition wants that here would rise the house that Francesco Petrarca’s family owned in Incisa and where the poet of Arezzo spent some years of his childhood.
The building has recently been bought by the Municipality.
