The original part of Palazzo Vescovile was built on foundations provided by part of the Roman amphitheatre, to the left of the Duomo, soon after the diocese was re-establised in 1218.

As part of the restoration of the Duomo in ca. 1650, Bishop Cardinal Francesco Angelo Rapaccioli commissioned:

  1. the extension to Palazzo Vescovile, to the left of the Duomo; and

  1. Palazzo del Seminario, to the right, which now houses the Museo Diocesano

These palaces were not completed until 1740.
