Arche Scaligere

 

To the right of the Palazzo del Governo in Piazza dei Signori one passes into a small square that is one of the most enchanting corners of Verona.  Here is the church of S. Maria Antica (12th century) and the Arche Scaligere, the monumental tombs of the city’s signori (della Scala) The thirteenth century wrought iron fencing with the family coat of arms encloses the monumental tombs above which are elaborate gothic baldachins and ornate statues by master sculptors (14 h century).
Inside the enclosure are the tombs of Mastino II, on the left, Cansignorio and towards the back that of Giovanni.  Above the doorway to the church is the tomb of Cangrande I with its equestrian statue (this is a copy; the original is conserved in the Castelvecchio Museum).
