Sala dei Giganti (Giants' room) is what remains of the palace of Carraresi family,
that governed the city in the 14th century. It
was built in the 13th century and at the beginning it was called
“Stanza degli eroi”(Heroes' room) because of the subjects of the
frescoes (14th century) on the walls. Francesco Petrarca suggested
the subjects that should be painted and, after his death in 1374,
his image was added to the fresco. This room was destroyed by a fire
at the beginning of the 16th century and it was completely rebuilt
by the venetian “Capitanio” Gerolamo Corner in 1540.
