Piazza del Municipio

Town Hall square, LivornoThe works in progress we saw a couple of months ago are almost completed and a part of the refurbished “Piazza del Municipio” is already open to the public. Always watching, from up there, is our colorful Chimera.Town Hall square, LivornoThis is where the buses carrying most of the cruise passengers stops, so a revamped square was long overdue. In background the arched loggia of our Chamber of Commerce.Town Hall square, LivornoTown Hall building is on the other side of the square and the rest... is a parking lot.

Very nice piazza...

It does look different without the excavators under the palms.
I'd like to be there getting off one of those buses from the cruise ships.

Beautiful building and BIG trees!
Just wondering if a tree like this would survive in our city??

That way when they rush to Pisa they get a very nice impression.

It looks much better now, VP!
Have a nice day!

VP said...

@ ciel - You are probably right...

Saretta said...

Is the town hall the building shown in the first picture? It looks like Fascist style architecture, am I right?

It looks really good!

VP said...

@ Saretta - Sadly that horror was built well after the war, in the middle of a beautiful square, and with the consent of one the most leftish local administrations in Italy. It is an office building.

A nice building. I love those big palms that set it off.

Francisca said...

Those are handsome palm trees in that revitalized square.

It looks great! I'm sure it makes Livorno citizens feel proud and visitors feel welcome.
