Via del Plebiscito, Rome

Previously it was called Via del Gesu', because was connecting Piazza Venezia and Piazza del Gesu'. The present name derives from the plebiscite of October 2, 1870, when the majority of Romans said "yes" to the unification of Rome with the kingdom of Italy. Apart from the name, nothing else had changed for this street.

One of the two entrance of Palazzo Doria Pamphilj is in via del Plebiscito. Though the main façade is the one on via del Corso, the building has also two important façades in Piazza del Collegio Romano and in via del Plebiscito. Via del Plebiscito is the junction of Piazza Venezia and Via del Corso.
