Neighborhood: San Marco
Overview

This piazza was formed in the Mattonaia quarter of the city, inside the city walls, at the end of the 19th century as a result of the development plan devised by the architect Giuseppe Poggi in the 1870s. Once established, the bourgeoisie then considered the area both residential and desirable. The area then saw the creation of Prince Umberto's theatre. Sadly, though it was destroyed two decades later. Another building appeared on the piazza at the beginning of the 20th century but today, this remains one of the few green spaces in the city center. There are amusements for young children including a merry-go-round, slides and a wooden castle in a cordoned-off area; and there are also areas for older children such as a basketball court.
