Piazza Risorgimento, Rome

Till 1890 on this place existed Porta Angelica (gate) built in 15th century and named after Pius IV. From the contemporary Piazza del Risorgimento during past centuries was possible to admire the horrible view of cages located on the top of the Porta, containing the human heads.

Piazza (Square) Risorgimento forms the meeting place of Via Cola di Rienzo and the quieter Via Crescenzio; in the form of a long boat, the square has recently been restored for the Jubilee. New long stone benches, flower beds, palms and a new lighting system decorate the square. Despite its central position below St Peter's , the square was a meeting place for street people and immigrants before the restoration work and was used for parking buses and trams at the end of their lines. Now the circulation has been organized more rationally.
