The ‘Clock Palace’ dates back to medieval  Age. Once it  housed the headquarters of the University and stands in Emanuele II’s  Square, a few steps from the cathedral.

Looking at the whole structure it does not seem that has medieval origins especially if  focuses attention on the sculptural decoration in the Rococo style of the windows. Once on the main façade, instead of the clock there was a sundial. The characteristic is that even today the watch is handmade loaded as in the past.

On the occasion of the festivity of Saint patron - San Vito - is erected a magnificent altar on which is placed the statue.
