Five Moons Square (Piazza delle Cinque Lune) is next to Piazza Navona. This square was received as a result of the arrangement of the zone in course of creation of Corso del Rinascimento. It remembers a street, a square and a fried food shop, all bearing the name "Cinque Lune", i.e. "Five Moons", derived from the coat-of-arms of the Piccolomini family (a cross with five growing moons), which was located on the house (not existing anymore) inhabited by pope Pius II Piccolomini. On the angle with the Piazza dell'Apollinare, a little palace attributed to A.da Sangallo the Younger was reconstructed. It is pleasant effect, with ashlar basement and two brick floors surmounted by a roof-terrace.
