The new premises of Casa Matha, internally affrescoed by Enrico Piazza, was built in 1901. Casa Matha, an ancient fisherman ’s society, has existed since the 10th century under the name of Schola Piscatorum.

It detained fishing rights in rivers and valleys, and with the passing of time came into possession of woods and dry valley lands, and the purpose of this order was to give mutual aid to its members. The society regulated the uses of fishing and fish trading.

Situated opposite Casa Matha is the Indoor Market, adorned with floral stuccoes and supported by cast-iron columns. This market took in food stores spread here and there in the neighbourhood, especially along Via IV Novembre, the ancient butchers ’ street.

Internal reconstruction was carried out in 1984, eliminating the original characteristic aspect of the stalls.

Amongst other things, the “Casa Matha” building hosts the Masonic temple Orient of Ravenna ( Freemasonry ); the Masonic house, therefore, is situated at Via Matteotti 35, just a short distance from the rear entrance to the Hotel Centrale Byron at Via Matteotti 19.
