The Logge di Banchi is one of the most characteristic buildings in the city's urban landscape, although it has long since been withdrawn from public access. On Sunday 8 October, through the scheduled guided tours, you can discover the history of the headquarters of the former Royal State Archives, retracing the stages of its use and the foundation of our Institute.

Meeting point: Logge di Banchi. Departure of the tours: at 3 pm, 3:30 pm, 4 pm, 4:30 pm and 5 pm.
