Bergamo was founded on a hill by a first very old settlement in the protohistoric age, age which gave it the configuration that still characterizes it: the oldest part of the town, enclosed within walls, lays up on the hill while the modern centre has developed on the plain. Celts, Goths, Romans, Lombards succeeded on the hill, but little can now be seen of them: some of the most important monuments date back to the Middle Ages. The four centuries under the Venetian domination are the most significant period, when Venice and Bergamo were very close, both from an historical and a cultural point of view.
Piazza Vecchia, the heart of the old town, is enriched by such remarkable historical monuments as the Palazzo del Comune or Palazzo della Ragione, the Commune Tower, the Venetian Major's House and the Library Angelo May, formerly the town hall. All round the Cathedral Square, a very religious area, are the Cathedral, St. Maria Maggiore, the Colleoni Chapel and the Baptistery.
