A town square (“piazza” in Italian) is usually one of the main city attractions. In Italy, thanks the rich historic heritage of the country,  you can find all kind of squares: from immense roman squares to renaissance squares with their perfect geometrical forms, from the squares that exist since the Ancient Greece times to the spacious modern Italian squares with a sophisticated design.

Italian squares are a part of the Italian culture

But a square itself has an important meaning for Italy and Italians. It is something more than just a part of the
townscape or an architectural artwork. The Italian squares have many important roles. They host weekly local markets, celebrations, fairs, festivals, become a venue for music concerts, political rallies and many other significant events.Picnic in Prato della Valle Padua

“Let’s go to the square” is a typical invitation that you can hear on a weekday evening or on weekend. And not only among young people, who adore to gather, eat, drink and socialize in the
square, but also among the representatives of the older generation, who come to the Italian squares to play chess o bocce (a typical Italian game) and discuss the latest news. Actually “mettere in piazza” (“Place on the square”) in Italian means “give publicity to something, tell everyone about it”

But first of all the Italian squares deserve attention because of their splendour and architectural richness. We would like to present you the top 10 of the most fascinating squares of the Italian cities.
