Palazzo della Ragione – Peter ‘Dude’

0
Although it seems impossible, we still do not know who designed the Palazzo della Ragione. To be fair, on the wall at the corner with Piazza dei Frutti a plaque reads "Pietro Cozzo designed this building in 1172, the Roman Republic of Padua in 1219". However, we have no idea who this Pietro Cozzo is, and probably never knew. The most realistic explanation is that the name derives from a mispronunciation of Pietro "Coso", the way the Veneto people still call someone whose name they cannot remember.
