If you are interested in Cesena’s history:

If you speak to locals every single soul has something to say about this building. Legend has it that the Devil himself built this house for his two sons. The brothers were always fighting over bragging rights so he somehow split “Il Palazzaccio” in half. Just how is it possible?

What we see here is one part.. but the other?

In this map from 1734, the building looks intact. So.. when did the “split” happen?

Mystery lies around. The most accredited version is the missing half is the near town of Forlimpopoli. Do you want to hear this absurd theory? There might be a tunnel underground that connects the two sides. The Devil is really in the details, as they say.
