Description

The Casa Quadra is an austere stone building, recognisable by its massive square-based tower rising above the other buildings. The name derives from the term ‘Quadra’ used to identify an administrative jurisdiction during Venetian rule. At that time, the representative of the Quadra of Trescore resided in this very building, which was an expression of wealth and power.
The former splendour, which has been largely lost, is still reflected in the 16th-century frescoes by Giovanni Battista Castello depicting the Stories of Ulysses. Detached and kept inside the Prefecture of Bergamo, they are now accessible to all by means of a Virtual Tour.
