Piazza dei Cavalieri
Born as roman forum and then transform into the politic centre of the city, Piazza dei Cavalieri today is an important cultural and study centre. In fact in the square is located the Palazzo della Carovana, seat of the prestigious university Scuola Superiore Normale.
Even the Church of Santo Stefano dei Cavalieri and the Palazzo dell’Orologio overlook the square. The latter building dates back to the Middle Ages and once was home to the Capitano del Popolo, the authority acting as middleman between noblesse and the middle class of merchants, bankers and artisans. In its centre there is a big arch and a clock.
