Piazza Della Signoria, Florence

Piazza Della Signoria is among the most beautiful Italian squares, located in the historic city of Florence, occupying a large area.

The imposing complex of Palazzo Vecchio towers over the piazza on the north side. It began in 1294 as a palace fortress for the residence of the Priors, Arnolfo di Cambio conceived the building as a large block crowned by merlons. The characteristic feature is the powerful thrust of the Tower rising up above the palace and similar in style to the upper part of the mansion.
