piazza dei Ciompi, Florence, Italy 50122Map
Neighborhood: Santa Croce
Overview

In times gone by, this lively Piazzetta was the stage for dramatic events in the history of the city; one example is when the workers, excluded from the Arti, revolted in 1378. Today, a flea market is held here. The Loggia, near via Pietrapiana, is decorated with multi-colored terracotta and was built by Giorgio Vasari. It was originally erected in 1567 in the present Piazza della Repubblica, where the old market was once held. It was dismantled in the 19th century to make way for construction work in the Piazza. It was then that Vasari's Loggia was moved to the Piazza dei Ciompi.
