Palazzo Peloso Cepolla majestically overlooks the square of S. Michele , with the tower reduced and transformed into a terrace, but still remarkable. In the atrium there is a fresco depicting Proculus, dressed as Hercules, the failed emperor of Albingaunum, from whom the Peloso Cepolla family claimed to be descended. The Palace was bequeathed to the Municipality by the last member of the family, Dr. Agostino Nicolari with the proviso that it would become the seat of the Institute of Ligurian Studies founded by prof. Nino Lamboglia . In addition to this function, the building houses the historical archive of the municipality.

In the most prestigious rooms, the Roman Naval Museum has been set up, whose visit allows you to admire, in addition to the interesting archaeological finds, the seventeenth-century frescoes on the walls and period reproductions of busts of Roman historical figures.
