  • It is a round square, surrounded by ordinary residential buildings and to reach it you have to walk back streets, away from the major arteries, so the area is very quiet, because even if they are roads that can be driven, they are still little Frequented. The square is also very quiet and relaxing, there are trees and many flower beds that divide the space into several parts, and in the center a simple fountain but surrounded by flower seedlings. There are many benches and the square is very popular with children, even for the 2 play areas dedicated to them. More than a square in my opinion resembles a small park; indeed I will say more, as it is put, for the palaces that surround it, for the many children present, for the family atmosphere that you breathe, for the fact that it is secluded and almost detached from the rest of the city, it almost resembles a large condominium courtyard (also because it is secluded and almost detached from the rest of the city, it almost resembles a large condominium courtyard (also because it is secluded , for the presence of the trees, once you have entered the square you do not notice the dehors of the premises that are located on the outermost ring of the square). For the tourist it may be a small square, but for the people of the neighborhood it is really a great place, to take us certainly children but also to come simply to spend time or have 2 chats away from the dins and frenzy of the City.
