This era was present of 11 of these so-good called hospitals in the town, reserved to welcome merchants and wayfarers. Nevertheless, this in particular drew great trust, as they were directly administered by the Merchants Court.The grand complex was divided into two sections: one part reserved for men that dwelled between the crossroads and the medieval walls, and the other dedicated to the welcome of women, opposite the Santa Giustina monastery current Registry Office.Close to the lodgings, were artisan businesses such as barbers, craftsman, bakers and tailors.Annexed to the building there was also a church, demolished at the start of the 20th Century; this was officiated by the Curia, but the access of the clergy was subordinated by permission from the Merchants Court.Thanks to the attentive restoration work and to the creation of the San Luca Palace, the Palace returns today to its ancient vocation of hospitality.
