Designed and made by Bologna engineer Ludovico Bolognini in 1774, it was planned as the Town Hall's archives; it was in this hall that on January 7, 1797, representatives of the free municipalities of Reggio, Modena, Bologna and Ferrara met to proclaim the Cispadane Republic, adopting the three colour green-white-red flag, later adopted in 1848 as the national flag (the prototype had horizontal bands). The Tricolour hall represents the town's civic commitment. Today, it is the seat of the Municipal Council. The town standard, decorated with a gold medal, is also kept here. The "Madonna della Ghiara" is depicted on one side, with Saints Prospero, Grisante and Daria; on the other side is the Town Hall coat of arms. The Town Hall is also used for weddings, conferences and other cultural events.

Every year, January 7, Reggio Emilia celebrates the anniversary of the proclamation of the Tricolour flag through civil, religious and cultural events.
