Finzi Square

Historical marketplace, the square owes its current layout to Vespasiano Gonzaga who, at the end of the sixteenth century, planned it at the same time as the expansion of the medieval village. Completed only in the seventeenth century, it took the name of “Piazza grande” until the early twentieth century. Its exceptional dimensions (100 meters x 35 ca) contribute, with the arcaded wings and the imperceptible trapezoidal geometry, to enhance the historical buildings that dot it: first of all the fifteenth-century Civic Tower < / strong>, the original door of the Castrum Riparoli , with the Praetorian Palace ; the Jewish Synagogue and Palazzo Penci . The urban space was structured according to the enhancement of Palazzo Pretorio, resorting to late Renaissance scenographic devices: the porticoed wings of the Piazza diverge, in fact, “opening” to take on the pre-existing Tower, as the perspective axis of the public space in front and contextual apparent axis of symmetry of the newborn Palazzo.
