Tarchna, Corneto, Tarquinia

The present-day Town Council Meeting Hall was completed in the 1960s after having demolished the pre-existing structure which had been the Community Theatre.

It is a large hall with a truss roof structure with large windows facing both sides of the building looking out onto the Square and Via San Pancrazio. To the right of the main entrance way lie the remains of a fresco which was formerly in the Chapter House in the Convent of S. Marco, detached from the wall in the convent in order to reveal an even more antique fresco beneath. Both of the frescos depict the crucifixion of a saint. On the front wall of the meeting hall, three great masterpieces can be admired featuring pastels on paper executed by the Chilean artist S. Matta entitled “Perchè le vittime vincano” (May Victims Win), painted in 1974 and the remains of another antique fresco, attesting to the former palace chapel. The pastel work was donated to the Town Hall of Tarquinia for the Council Chamber in 1975. In addition to being the seat of the town council meetings, the Council
Chamber often hosts cultural events such as conferences, conventions, concerts and Prose and Poetry Competitions such as the prestigious “Premio Cardarelli” for excellence in literature.
