This palace is best known for the modern and contemporary art gallery that it houses, 'Achille Forti' and more importantly, for certain historical events. The building was already in existence in the XIII century as its oldest part can confirm and it can therefore almost certainly be dated in this period named 'the wing of Ezzellino da Romano' after the tyrant Ezzellino III who governed Verona between 1232 and 1259. After his death the palace underwent several architectural modifications, particularly during the Scaligera family's domination. The first took place in the 15th Century when the building was acquired by the Emilei family who made it into a residentila palace. The second was during the 16th Century while the third took place in the 18th Century with the front of the palace being reworked by the architect Ignazio Pellegrini. The palace, where Nelson even stayed during his Italian campaign has been passed on through generations of the Emilei family up to the last descendent, the botanist Achille Forti who, in 1937, gave it to the local council. Thanks to his will, the palace has now become a museum of modern art.
