Just  like  garlands, the  mansions embrace the sides of the square and enhance the streets of the town. Also these, like the Cathedral, have evi- dent signs of the prosperous period which followed the Venetian conquest in 1405, which promoted trade and lead to the building of mansions, villas, banks and workshops for the craftsmen. Of the two main streets, Via Matteottti is known for its spaciousness and for the high class mansions, while Via Carrarese and the parallel street, Via Marconi (once known as Malpaga), are narrower with less elaborate buildings. At one time they were the streets where you could find the shops and the workshops.
