Palazzo della Ragione, Padua'When one visits a monument of this type, for example the Palazzo della Ragione in Padua, one is always surprised by a series of questions intimately associated with it. In particular, one is struck by the multiplicity of functions that a building of this type can contain over time and how these functions are entirely independent of the form. At the same time, it is precisely the form that impresses us; we live it and experience it, and in turn it structures the city.’ Aldo Rossi, The Architecture of the City, MIT Press, Cambridge, 1982, p. 29.
