Piazza dei Caduti per la Libertà was built in the 1930s under the name of Piazza del Littorio, after a long debate between innovatory architects, who wanted to transform the city, and local intellectuals, inclined to maintain the old urban structure.
The project followed the rearrangement of the nearby Dante’s zone and was included in a new town-planning scheme, that aimed at making of this area the centre of the urban renewal project. Over the years, the square did not lose its importance and it now represents one of the main entrances to the city centre.
