This square was built in the first half of the nineteenth century, and is surrounded by imposing buildings on three sides. The majestic Porta Nuova is a railway station on the remaining side. At the centre is a small garden adorned with well-tended rare plants and a statue dedicated to Edmondo De Amicis. There are two small symmetrical squares which lead off the main piazza: Piazzetta Lagrange (opening onto the road of the same name) and Piazzetta Paleocapa.
