In front of the Basilica of San Lorenzo, there is a square with a row of columns on either side which were taken from a monumental building dating from the 2nd century B.C. and repositioned. Up until 1935, the space between the church and columns was entirely occupied by old houses abutting onto the façade of the church itself. Despite the plans to conserve this ancient urban fabric, the renovations led to the demolition of the old houses and the isolation of the monument.
