and well kept walls, with foreparts and variously shaped towers, enclose
and exalt the ancient area of the town. Within this solidly structured
area are houses and palaces, streets that intersect, and medioeval arches
that create, all together, a very suggestive and peculiar atmosphere with
those more or less qwide corners following some particularly significant
ones by Lorenzo Lotto, kept in the picture-gallery. The town, that was the
homof great artists, among whom Gian Battista Pergolesi, offers also
interesting opera season.
